    Are their eyes watery? Their nose? If you can listen to their lungs by holding your ear under a wind... do you hear wheezing or crackles? any of those things could be a respiratory illness. you could try Sulmet- treats some respitory dieases & coccidia, or give some Tylan 50 under skin or a few drops in mouth depending on size of bird.

    allergies? my male golden has some trouble during the worst parts of the pollen season, and then he immediately gets better. But your situation sounds a little more serious.
