    Sounds like it was Safeguard. The 0.5 ml amount was enough to treat large roundworms.

    Not that it matters, because I think your problem is respiratory. Can you post pictures of their eyes?

    They did have worms which is why we treated. We found them when one pooped in their water.

    This hen has had her eyes closed the longest which has been about 5 days and she's the thinnest.

    This hen started acting this way a couple days ago. The picture of her eye on the left is due to me accidently pulling of a feather that was stuck to her bottom eye lid. They had oatmeal all over their face so I wiped them down as best as I could. They just started taking oatmeal and water out of a bowl but I have to hold it near their face for them to find it.

    That is a bread ball on a penny. I used that as an example. I wormed with Safeguard paste horse wormer.

    I squirted an amount, that was the equivalent of that bread ball, onto a small piece of bread and fed it to them.

    On those two, it looked clear. They fought me on it.

    After breathing her putrid breath while trying to give her fluids, I realized that her breath actually smells like rotting onions. I'm wondering if she has a mass of rotting onion grass in her crop. I know I won't be able to get that out if that's what the problem is, and we have no avian vet around here. My vet looks on the Internet for answers when I call him about our hens. He has no clue either, though he tries to help.
