    Have you seen any wet or moldy conditions around their coop or run? Is there any nasal drainage, watery eyes, or sneezing? To help prevent respiratory diseases, it helps to have excellent coop ventilation, keep bedding dry and clean, and prevent dust from feed and bedding. I would keep an eye out for any additional symptoms.
