Constant, even temperature around 95 degrees F. Keep their water as clean as possible and dip their beaks in it until they drink on their own. Hard boil an egg and mash with a fork, and offer next to their regular feed.

It's normal to lose a chick or two in shipping. If you call the hatchery they will usually refund you for chicks that arrive dead.

Congrats on your new babies. :)
