    Why are you not using a heat lamp? Is it 90 at night also? What type of food and bedding are you using?

    Hard to tell the size of those brooders but they're probably crowded in there. Sneezing isn't that unusual but it could be from dust maybe? I can't see inside so not sure what you're using for bedding.

    If it's around 90 degrees and they're 3 weeks old they're fine, maybe even a bit hot during the day.
