Any other symptoms, like noisy breathing, gurgling, flem inside the beak?

This could be a one eye cold or more. Are you sure they haven't been pecked?

Since you have them isolated, put them on warmth, keep them out of drafts and cold air, and allow them to eat and drink freely, in a stress free environment, and keep a close eye on them. If they are not eating well they will need handfeeding.

I would put a drop of colloidal silver in the effected eye/s as well as the good eye.

Since they are still young, and you don't mention any other symptoms I wouldn't put them on the respiratory meds' yet, up the immune system by giving them probiotics in their food and put a drop of organic apple cider vinegar in their water. Youngsters are so easily stressed and depleted of gut bacteria, it is easy for them to become run down. See how they are a few days from now.

If you now have swelling and discharge from both eyes in this bird, that is one classic symptom of respiratory, so I would first seek an avian vet, but if that is not possible start treatment for respiratory disease/infection immediately. You need to use tylen in conjunction with aureomycen. Follow instructions carefully and give the full dosage as recommended.

You may need to check your coop and make sure it is draft free, with plenty of ventilation, and keep coop clean of dust and ammonia, overcrowding can also be an issue where there is respiratory issues.
