    I'm sorry to hear they are not doing well!

    I would try Nutri-drench, straight or in their water so both have it. You need to keep them hydrated to the best of your abilities.

    @007Sean may have better information about the situation you are in. He has helped me wi th my quail issues.

    This should give them bit of a boost that may get them to eat!

    Dont force them to drink it you want them to drink it themselves other wise they could drown.

    I would try this recipe because it goes straight to the chick I stead of in the water, but you can still put other electrolyte water down for them so the other can drink it too. I believe it's called save-a-chick..
