Welcome to BYC!

Are these babies? You shouldn't put a lid on your brooder. You need good heat and oxygen exchange. If this is the case, see how it goes for a few days with only wire on the top of the brooder. If they are still sneezing and runny noses in a couple days, you will need to add some antibiotics to the water. Duramycin is great for respiratory ailments. You can get this at most feed stores.

If these are adult birds, same thing.

Good luck with your birds and keep us posted!
