My waterer wasn't working right and the bedding got soaked. The chicks were probably sitting on the wet bedding for 12 hours. Now the white chicks, which are about 1 to 2 weeks old have the underneath part of them all brown and bad looking. Should I be concerned?

If it is just dirt they will clean themselves. Make sure they are warm enough to dry and have Corid on hand as wet conditions can bring on coccidiosis. Better to have it and not need it then not have it when you do.
