    The weather has gotten colder this past week. I think I have heard almost every chicken sneez. Is this normal or should I be worried?

    Could be dust. Sneezing might be from all kinds of things. I would just be on the lookout for any other problems if it were me, like any other signs of respiratory illness, lethargy, etc.

    Check your coop conditions. Make sure the ammonia level isn't too high when you first open the door in the morning. Take a whiff. If you smell ammonia, then that will burn their respiratory passages.
