    An occasional sneeze from dusty feed or dust bathing is normal, but sneezing accompanied with mucous would be a sign of respiratory illness. Stress - like being frightened can cause symptoms to present.

    Chickens do not get colds, so respiratory illness would be most likely what you have. Separate any sick sneezing birds that have mucous.
