I just brought
spark liquid
sustained release
energy supplement and
electrolytes 20 mm per litre I got them to swallow about 20 drops so hopefully that will start to help them and I left more in ther for them

im not sure.....maybe just try to leave them for a bit relax, then come back in an hour or so and see how they are doing this may just be a new chick thing that they will grow out of, I have had chicks with seemingly broken legs and wings end up ok when I didn't intervene and stress both myself and the chicks out . you can also always call a hatchery or avian veterinarian(if there is one open) and ask them they will usually help a lot. I wish you the best of luck i hope they make it.
