    It might not be an illness. If its only happening to your males, they may be fighting. The swelling might be caused by another bird pecking them. If so, you can only wait and see if the swelling goes down.

    Another possible cause is a respiratory infection. Have you noticed any sneezing, heavy breathing, discharge, or coughing? Even if you haven't the swelling on its own indicates a possible respiratory disease. You may want to get some Tylan50 or Tylan200, as these antibiotics are excellent for treating respiratory diseases. Both of these antibiotics are injectable.

    Hope I've helped!

    Hi, did you find out what it was and were they treated or did they just recover on their own?

    hi, actually i don't know what it was but my guess it's something to do with their digestion system or sanitation..i just keep all the thing in good condition whether their feed or coops but it'll take a little time to see their back in very well shape as i don't like to use any medicine that we can bought in stores because i know i'll eat them someday.. :)
