Any ideas would be helpful?
If you had one die, can you send it in for necropsy? Casportpony has a very helpful thread about how to get a necropsy on a bird to determine cause of death.
I had a few die from something like this the past winter. They seemed disoriented and got worse and worse.
What are you feeding? Any scraps?
This is all just speculation from what happened to mine, and yours might be completely different. I suspected part of my issue was that my scraps bucket had a little mold on the bottom and something from that was making them sick. (I didn't see it at the time, only noticed it much afterwards) Feed or grain can also get moldy- so if possible, change out and sanitize all the feeders and waterers, and take a good look at their feed. If it seems damp or moldy at all, throw it out.
