Can you take some pictures of her eyes & post them as soon as possible?

 

How & where are you housing them?  Do you have a heat lamp on them?

They Are in a little yet spacious and clean crate. And no heat lamp since the weather is hot enough. I will show u her picture. Shes keeping her mouth open like this during breathing. And eyes are evident too

Sorry, I forgot to welcome you to BYC.

 

Okay, what are you using for their bedding inside the crate?  Do they always have access to water that's deep enough to dip their entire head?  What are you feeding them?

 

Try to get some close of pics of her nares (nostrils) and eyes.

I would wet a rag and wash around her eyes.  Make sure they have a water bowl that is deep enough that they can put their head down in.  That cleans out their nostrils and eyes.
