    The swollen eyes made me think of fowl pox - something going through my flock now. Do a search on fowl pox - upper right hand corner of the page. There is a lot of information. I can't address the breathing issue unless your birds have the "wet" version of the disease.

    That shouldn't be fowl pox doing that. That sounds respiratory. If I had that much in birds I would find someone tomorrow to do some testing to determine just what it is.
