    Poly Vi Sol (NO iron). 2-3 drops orally per chick. You can find it in the baby section at stores like Walmart.

    I've read that a bit of honey in water can help or a bit of gatorade (if you can't get to the shops anytime soon)

    Vitamin supplements / electrolytes will help boost their immune system and thus protect against any opportunistic organism that may cause sickness.
