they have a respiratory illness. as to exactly which one only testing would tell. however you can successfully treat it with Tylosin or Tylan 50. you can buy Tylan50 at the feed store. do NOT worry that the bottle says for cattle and swine. MANY poultry owners including myself successfully treat respiratory illness with Tylan50. the dose is for large birds 1/2 cc for small birds 1/4 cc once daily for 5 days in the breast muscle. as a matter of fact I just finished treating mine with the tylan for a respiratory issue. it does a great job! you can also get the syringe from the feed store. I prefer to use diabetic needles as they are smaller but it doesn't matter which syringe you use. please treat ASAP. you should notice a significant improvement in a few days
Tylan is a excellent choice for respiratory issues. I would choose the injection over the water soluble antibotic because dose is more controlled and concentrated. also they don't drink as much when they are not feeling well. so I'd get the tylan 50 asap. best wishes
