    Can you post some photos?
    Do they have any mucous in the nostrils or runny eyes?

    If the yellow gunk is inside the beak then you may be dealing with canker. Wet form of Fowl Pox also has yellow lesion inside the beak and throat as well, but usually they would have sores on the face as well.

    Treatment for canker is Metronidazole. Separate the ones that are showing symptoms, sanitize your water stations.
