Lethargic turkey chicks

Hi all looking for some advice, had two turkey chicks hatch this morning ( a day early) they seem very tired with no great interest in food , they can stand but they barely more around and seem to want to sleep most of the time . Any advice as to why this may be ? Thanks

We would give weak chicks some sugary water. Plastic syringe, few ml of sugary warer in it , offer them the drip and they'll take it. A few drops at the start is all they'll take but it gives them a great jump.
