My hen (Margaret) had that a few months ago. Luckily she recovered quickly. If you haven't already, I would separate the sick ones if you can, as it can spread. I honestly don't know exactly what it is. I suppose it can be any number of things. I'd put a little sugar in thier water, and hope for the best. The sugar seems to improve thier condition. Good luck!!!

We are a working 40 acre farm that currently has 300 hens and more roosters, temporarily growing with the hatches. We hatch and purchase Mcmurray hatchery every year.
We also have goats, hogs, horses, collies, rhodesian ridgebacks, guinea fowl, pheasants, peafowl, geese, ducks, turkeys, and anything else you can think of.
They have a respitory disease. You should get them out of the coop IMMEDIATELY. It will worsen every second. Their faces will become swollen around the eyes, too!
Take all the shavings out of the coop take a bleach solution or a cleaner made for chicken coops and SCRUB all around, especially the floors. Use in moderation. BUY shavings and put that in your coop after everything dries up.

They rarely do survive. I would call your vet and get some suggestions. If you do not have one(shame on you!), call any dog/cat vet and get some help. Look up on the internet.
THIS IS SERIOUS AND MUST BE CARED FOR IMMEDIATELY. You should clean your coop tomorrow morning.
