    Alright and [​IMG] Glad to have you here [​IMG]


    Well first I would ask you what you are feeding them as It sounds like 8 week old chicks should be very healthy ......

    Here try this Hard boil an egg peal and mash with a fork and serve [​IMG]

    Water you need to put in some Probiotic to help them [​IMG]


    This is just to start now if you let us know what you are feeding your chicks [​IMG]

    Are you keeping them warm enough? Where do you have them now - indoors or out? In the raising backyard chickens forum - go to the section "raising baby chicks," will give you a lot of information.

    Welcome to BYC. You've come to the right place for help. As DSD said; First and foremost, are they warm, dry, and out of the wind? Second, do they have clean water and proper feed?
