    Call Ideal right away and ask for their assistance! It could be that they were just weak and just couldn't tolerate the shipping - I had two of ten die because of that last year within 4 days of receiving them. But they may have other ideas. Keep them warm...do you have any electrolyte powder?? You could put that in their water. Maybe soft scramble some egg and see if they'll pick at that for extra protein. I think...emphasis on think... human Polyvisol vitamins (WITHOUT IRON) might be a good thing to give them too. I'd put some in their water. Do a search here for Polyvisol - someone will have posted amounts.

    Hang in there! I love all the rescues you've done! You're a great person!!!
