    Got McM chicks this morning and there are 2 that don't look good at all. They are laying in the brooders with their eyes closed. Is there anything I can give them? Every one else is up and eating and drinking.

    The trip can be pretty stressful, they may just be tired. Make sure they are drinking, a few sips of some light sugar water can do wonders, not too much. Make sure your brooder is warm enough and free of drafts.
