    Most Cornish I have had sneezed not sure about the fluid in the lungs or how you could even hear that but I would guess they are fine as long as they are dry . I would guess that they would be dead if they really had fluid in there lungs , I am not a expert but just guessing from the ones I have raised.

    Corinna, do some research on the different threads. Search at top for illness or sick chickens. Lot of threads. Sorry, I don't have an answer.
