Sneezing Chicks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My chicks (about a week and a half or 2 weeks old) keep making little sneezing noises every minute or so. All three do this. Other than the sneezing, they are perfectly heathly ie. no weakness, eat and drink well, run around the brooder for food, ect. Do any of ya'll know what this is, and should I treat them? Thanks for any replies!

You might want to try using a different bedding in the brooder. I purchased chicks from a feed store a couple weeks ago and they sneezed all the time. I changed the bedding to larger shavings and added apple cider vinegar to their water for a few days and the sneezing stopped. I think the pine shavings I started out with were too fine and created too much dust for them.
