If they have bugs it's likely lice or mites. They probably got them from your other chickens. You can dust them with Sevin dust to kill the adults, clean out the brooder and dust that too, and then repeat again in ten days. Might want to do any other chickens you have too because they probably have them and if you don't the chicks are just going to get the lice/mites again from them.

If they were with other chickens for five or ten minutes that's enough time for lice/mites to crawl from one to another or for the chicks to have picked up ones that were in the bedding, etc.
