    Please if you can help, I will take any advice. These are my pets. Some of them have already died. It looks like a cold. Eye drainage, some are closed up and a runny nose/beak. I have given them terramycin in the water, but my problem is spreading.
    Help me if you can.
    Thank you for your kindness.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    Look up Infectious Coryza and see if that fits the description of your birds. You can search it on BYC.

    Separate the sick ones if possible and dissinfect what you can. Keep them warm and hydrated until you can figure out treatment.

    Curious as to how many and what breed.
