Hi and welcome,
Sorry, I can't help, but if you look
there is a list of questions about sick chooks that make it possible for those with the knowledge to be more helpful.
Maybe you could try posting your question, (and all the information asked for), in the Your Place section where it might be seen by more people too.
Hi and welcome donnanz. What are you feeding them firstly?
If they are not standing and acting blind I would suspect they are weak and under weight as you say, and you probably need to give them a very nutritious type of feed, with plenty of protein and fat. If you have not already tried, give them wet cat or dog food mixed with whatever chook food the others get.
If they are not interested in either looking for food or eating it themselves it might be too late to save them.
