    Chickens sneeze, yes. It could be dust or some irritant or sign of a respiratory problem. If she doesn't stop post her symptoms and as much detail as possible, (behaviour other than sneezing, nasal discharge or not) in the Emergencies & Disease section. Hopefully it's just an irritant and nothing serious.

    Agree.

    They can also sometimes make a sneezing sound if they have food stuck in their throat.

    At first I was worried when I heard my first chicken sneeze and started searching to see what might be wrong. A sneeze is perfectly normal. Just be sure their nasal cavity is normal and you don't see any type of discharge.
