The local feed stores here sell electrolyte powders you mix in water for stressed out, sick, and or shipped chicks. Never used it myself but I have used electrolytes on sick cats before. It gives them an extra boost.

Hard boiled egg yolk. If you have fresh eggs on hand, raw egg yolk. That is what the peep consumed right before hatching, so that is the food Mother Nature designed it for this early in life.

I feed hard boiled egg yolk for the first meal for all my new peeps. If you have organic yogurt you can mash a little in with the egg yolk.
