    Hi everyone,

    I have a question I have noticed a few chickens sneezing they are 5
    weeks old today. I looked at each chick and I do not see any discharge
    from their nostrils or their eyes. Everyone is eating and foraging
    fine. They are almost completely feathered. Any ideas?

    It could just be dust from their litter or dry dirt making them sneeze. Keep a very close eye on them to make sure it's not an URI. I would not worry if it's just an occasional sneeze as long as they seem "normal".
