    Hello!

    Sounds like your chickens have gotten a virus or a respiratory infection. There's a product called Denegard, that works great for these types of illnesses. It's normally for swine (pigs) but you put it into your chicken's drinking water, and it will clear them right up. It's expensive, costs around $55 for a jug, but it works well, and will last you a long time.

    Sweeten up their water with some brown sugar, because it is bitter.

    Good luck to you,
    Sharon
