    They probably have a respiratory infection. I generally treat mine with injectable tylan 50, and it works wonders. For adult chickens give them 1/2 cc down their throat. Young chickens (half grown) give 1/4 cc. For biddies you can give them 1/10 cc. Give these dosages for three to five days. Hope this helps!
