    It sounds like they have a resp infection. Tylan is an ab I assume this is what the vet gave you. When I had a hen with this I tried Tylan and it did not sort the problem and ended up sorting it with Baytril. I think the best way to give baytril is not the 10% you put in the water as you do not know how the much the hens are taking. You can get it I think it is 2.5% and this you give by syringe direct into the beak. This is prescription only Im afraid
