    It looks like conjunctivitis, possibly with sinus infection typical in mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG,) a chronic respiratory disease. You may contact your state vet or poultry lab and get a necropsy done on one or two (usually the cost is the same for two in many states) to get a diagnosis. Did you hatch the chicks from your eggs, or did the chicks come from somewhere else?
