    Looks like a respiratory disease..what antibiotic are you using ?
    l
    Did your chickens arrive with this problem or are they established for some time with you ?

    Any further information you can give may help to diagnose what the prognosis is...

    You will need to discard any eggs that they may be laying...oxytetracycline is a good antibiotic...I take it that you are using this in their drinking water...which needs to be changed every day...

    You may consider looking up the symptoms of coccidiosis...see if any of the symptoms match...if so...get some corid and treat them all.

    Good luck and keep us updated with any developments...
