It sounds as though you have purchased sick chicks. Did you get them from the same source, or different ones? The last set could just be weak. Give vitamins and electrolytes, or sugar in the water if you can't get the other. Swollen eyes if not from pecking are a sign of respiratory disease, ones such as MG or coryza. I would take the first ones back, and don't put the second set near them.
