Hello,

We have 3 baby chickens. Approx 3 weeks old that are sneezing to much. It started over a little week ago with random sneezing but now I can hear one of them sneezing every minute and wheezing a little too. There has been a watery discharge since Friday from nose but it's clear no color. The have a heat plate so o know it's not cold. Is there something I could do or give to them? One seems worse than the other 2 but all 3 are sneezing. They eat natures best organic chicken starter because all of my other chickens always ate this but should I change to medicated... will chasing the feed fix the sneezing?? Please help
Thank you

How are you keeping them? Good ventilation, and air exchange is important. So is keeping the brooder clean and dry.

Agree with questions above as well as, What are you using for bedding?
With their nostrils running, check to see if there is build up in their nostril cavity.
Do you happen to have any VetRx?

They are in a small chicken coop that I bought in Amazon. Supposedly holds up to 5 full grown chickens. They are in my living room. And I do clean it regularly since I have shavings and they make a mess.

Pictures? They would be better off somewhere the air can be exchanged on a regular basis. Is the coop enclosed? I often leave a window open next to my brooder. Dust and mold are deadly to chicks.
