    So, a couple of ays ago I noticed a few of my chickens with 'saggy' looking eyes. One of the birds with this also has bubbles in one of his eyes, and earwax satining the white feathers covering his ear. Nobody is acting sick or anything, just have these weird saggy eyes. Should I be worried? I will have pics up as soon as I can find my camera....

    Bubbles in the eye, earwax showing are 2 good indicators of a respiratory problem. It could be mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG.) Here's a link to poultry respiratory diseases to help you best match the symptoms with the disease:
