    Go to feed store and ask for an antibotic for the water. I think its durimyicin(sp) and its like a tsp to 1 gal fresh water daily. 3-5 days. Start there and see if it works and if not then maybe tylan injectable.

    if it is a resperatory issue the tylan will work best the injectable works best use 1/4 cc for bantams and 1/2 cc for standard birds it will work quick......

    Thats what I use but we are not sure on what it is yet. That why I suggest antibotic. If its MG I suggest denagard. Could it be shavings?

    I prefer the Tylan injectable also for respiratory issues - works faster and better than anything I've mixed with the water. Are their eyes watery/bubbley? Do you hear/feel any rattling in their chest? I try not to use antibiotics unless absolutely necessary.
