    I have two birds that have like a sneeze or cough..one eye is shut on both and they get really lethargic at the end of the day.. one girl tends to shut her eyes and drift to sleep as she stands. One looks like his eye might be swollen a bit. havent gotten close to him enough to tell.

    It sounds like you ought to isolate the birds from the rest of your flock to be able to keep a really close watch on them. If it subsides then fine, if the symptoms continue or get worse, you would already have them isolated and could see what you need to do for the next steps.
