This might be the beginning symptoms of a respiratory disease such as MG or mycoplasma gallisepticum. There may be some conjunctivitis and eye foam, as well as sinusitis which is common in MG. I would check for other signs such as nasal drainage, sneezing, or chest rattles. Tylan50 injectable given as a shot or given orally, or oxytetracycline given in the water may be used to treat MG, but chickens still can be carriers. Here is some info on the respiratory diseases including MG: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
