It's probably nothing but....

I recently have seen one of my hens sneeze! I checked her out and she is energetic and eating normal. Laying as well. I know sneezing could be a sign of disease but could she just sneeze? Like when humans get a tickle?

You are right, it may be nothing. If there is sneezing occasionally, it can be due to dusty feed or conditions. If it becomes more frequent, then look for nasal or eye drainage or noisy breathing.

Yep, while I recommend keeping a close eye on her, my gals will sneeze occasionally, especially if they have been flicking dirt at each other in the dust bath or had their beak buried in the greenery around the garden ;)
