Sneezing chickens, no nasal discharge

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So about a week ago my chickens started sneezing, since I didn't see any discharge from eyes or nostrils I just kept an eye on them. Today my 24 week old Easter egger started wheezing. I've separated her, but I'm not sure what else to do. I haven't seen any nasal discharge and I looked at the back of her throat and it looked ok. Any ideas?

Dusty conditions from bedding or feed, poor air circulation, mold or wet conditions can all be causes for sneezing and respiratory problems. Respiratory diseases such as infectious bronchitis and MG could also cause sneezing. If you think it could be an infectious problem, you could watch it or try treating with Tylan 50 or oxytetracycline. Here is a link to read about diseases: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044

Thought I'd post what happened. So the next morning she was fine. I kept her separate for a day just in case, but there was no recurrence. I did feed her bread soaked in olive oil and rubbed some vetrx on her comb.
