It is most probably a respiratory issue/infection with perhaps other issues, and please isolate this bird and any other with these symptoms. Keep them warm and out of drafts, rehydrate and make sure to feed them if they aren't eating.

It would be best if you could get a diagnosis from an avian vet so treatment can be done with the correct meds. There are combinations of meds like doxy cycline and tylosin that are beneficial for certain respiratory infections.
Please wash hands thoroughly after handling the birds, and use all hygenic protocals.

I would administer probiotics, Neem oil, colloidal silver and other good things immediately. The most important aspect of controlling these kinds of infections is to control adequate ventilation, clean up dust, keep and keep coop clean. Use a good disinfectant and floor dressing. Make sure birds are dry and weather/rain free inside their coop.

Do not buy any more birds from this breeder.

Thankyou for the reply trees gray, i have the bird away from the rest, al the rest seem to be ok at the minute, but i am going to take it to vet tomorrow to see if i can find out exactly what is wrong with it, I will not buy any more birds from this breeder again, they seem to be in it for the money and not for the love of the birds, if it is respiratory i will have to treat all the birds is that right.
