    How old are your chicks. Some times it takes new hatchlings a little to get their balance. It might be normal. Pictures always help on here.

    And if they were shipped they could be unsteady and dehydrated. Make sure they know how to drink and eat. Try electrolytes from the feed store, directions on the package. good luck [​IMG]
