    I have attached a Youtube video of what he sounds like. I quaranteed him along with another pullet who's eyes are swollen. Anyhow can you help me with what his problem may be? They both came out of the same cage initially. Now they are all on Deramycin.

    I don't have the app to see the video. How about describing the symptoms for us?

    Sounds respiratory. See if you can get ahold of some denaguard. I have seen it work wonders on all kinds of ailements.
