    Sick birds, you need to read up on upper respiratory infections. Find out why they have the infection and fix it.Treating the birds does not fix the cause. However, treat the birds with good ventilation, clean housing, good feed, greens, water, exercise.

    Did you recently bring a new bird in?
    I think your best bet right now is to treat everyone with Tylan antibiotic for most respiratory stuff.
