    The one in the video I heard her sneeze a couple of times and she sounds a bit congested.
    She may have a respiratory infection. Have you ever had any other chickens that were sick with coughing, sneezing, mucous, watery eyes?
    I would keep watch on her, if her symptoms worsen or you see mucous/watery eyes, then you can try an antibiotic like Tylan50 to see if that helps. Antibiotics will not cure respiratory disease.

    The one in your photos - her feather loss is likely due to overmating by the rooster. Could be a little feather picking going on as well. She could be hiding out from the rooster and not eating/drinking, but it won't hurt to check her out for lice/mites, get a fecal float to check for worms and feel her abdomen for bloating.

    You didn't post any words with your photos of products, but I'm assuming you are asking about them? Corid (Amprolium) is used to treat Coccidiosis overload, it is not an antibiotic, so will not treat any respiratory illness whatsoever.

    The Zyfend? It's not a dewormer. If you suspect worms, getting a fecal float is best so you know what type of worms to treat. Collect some samples of poop and take them to your vet for testing.

    What state or country do you live in?
    What's your weather like?
    Do you have ventilation in your coop/can you open the windows (are they covered with predator proof screening)?

    I still heard a sneeze and it looked like another is having some respiratory issues. It could be anything from poor ventilation to respiratory disease.

    How many birds do you have and how big is their coop?

    You may be dealing with respiratory infection. It's hard to know.
    Have you added new birds within the last 30 days?

    For the ones that are having difficulty breathing/sneezing (have symptoms) you can try Tylan50 to see if that make a difference. You can find that in feed stores like Tractor Supply. Dosage is 0.25ml per pound of weight, given orally, 3 times a day for 5 days.

    Hmm, I guess that’s about 4 sq ft per bird. But it does look like she is possibly getting picked on and definitely overbred judging by all those feathers missing on her back.
