    It started with just one, but seems to have spread through the other 4 - they are making sounds like a cough or sneeze, lethargy, eyes closed often and slightly smaller, poor appetite (they did really like the yogurt this morning). We checked for sour crop and didn't feel a lump, I checked for mites and didn't see any at all -- any ideas out there? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    As silly as it sounds, they could just have a cicken cold. I'd try some vet RX in their water as well as a drop on the beak, it's in the direction. Smells like vics vapo rub, worked for my chickies a month ago. Good luck!
