  2. Do you have chickens? Could be blackhead.
    At this point not much you can do unless you get meds ASAP (which meds I don't know, sorry)
    Maybe try to add electrolytes to the water.

    Describe where you had them being brooded? Space? Heat Lamp? Drafts? Bedding? Temp of Water? Feed? Mold? Need more details.
