    Welcome to BYC.Your chickens appear to be suffering from a respiratory disease such as mycoplasma (MG,) or others. Is there any swelling of the eye or the face? Most of these diseases make carriers of your flock for life, so you will want to close your flock. Antibiotics such as Tylan and oxytetracycline may help treat symptoms. Here is a good link to click on to read about common respiratory diseases, and look at MG, IB, ILT, and coryza: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
