    I just incubated and hatched my first chickens 4 days ago. 16 hatched and all seem to be doing really well (drinking, eating, sleeping, etc). I noticed today that 2-3 of the chicks are sneezing. Since I am COMPLETLY new to this it has me worried after reading about all the diseases and such. They are in a baby pool on a sheet. All are energetic and acting well. I am feeding them medicated chick starter. There is clear fluid that is expelled when they sneeze. Is this dangerous? What should be done? Thanks so much!

    Maybe you should post in the disease thread. Other than that I don't know.

    Hoping the OP is still around... Did the chicks turn out to be fine?
