    I noticed that my Marans has been sneezing non-stop for at least 2 days. The other birds in the coop are not sneezing that I have observed, just my little marans.

    I am headed home in a little bit and I would like to try something to make her life a little better.

    What should I do for her when I get home?

    Quote:They are more like wood shop shavings, but that shouldn't matter as she has been living in them since august and this is the first time she's been sneezing.

    Quote:I have see some stuff fly out of her nose when she sneezes but there isn't any constant discharge that i can see.

    I had some of it hit my coat last night but it was gone before I could get a good look at it.
