    How old are the chicks?

    Get them under a heat lamp.

    Are they fluffed up? Sinus discharge? Wings drooping? Eating normally?

    Lots of questions but would hate to make suggestions without some more information.

    hmm lets see they are about 18 days old...they dont like to walk around as much they just kinda sit down. they eat but not as much as they used to. i put asprin in the water (what my AG teacher said to do) and i moved the heat lamp down. and thats about what i have noticed
