    Do chickens ever sneeze occasionally, like humans, and it is NOT an emergency? Every once in a great while once of mine will sneeze, but they all look so healthy and happy. Should I be worried?

    I don't think so, not if it's only occasionally. Dust can be a problem for everyone in the summer.

    A little sneeze here and there is normal. Just like babies that sneeze. They can't blow thier nose so they clear it out that way instead.
