Eyes closed on chicken

Hi all, woke up today to find two of my chickens with eye problems. One has both eyes shut while the other only one.

    Are they showing any other symptoms ?Any sneezing or runny noses? Mycoplasma is one of several respiratory diseases that affect their eyes.They will need antibiotics if this is the case 
     if they are otherwise well you could try spraying colloidal silver onto their eyelids . one spray twice a day should do it . golden eye ointment is safe for eye infections but if theres and muck, discharge or bubbles in the eyes then they will need antibiotics , preferably tylan
    hope theyre soon better
