    Do chickens need antibiotics for runny nose and sneezing symptoms? Any ideas on causes? I went to feed them this morning and several have a runny nose and one was sneezing and shaking fluid out of her beak. I never had this problem before and dont know what to do about it.

    I don't know anything about chicken illnesses, but maybe someone else who has had experience with these symptoms will notice this thread...

    I just read about something that sounds like this, it was called MG. I hope that it isn't what your birds have. It sounds pretty bad, but I just thought that you may check out the threads that describe it. Good Luck!
