    My birds have allergies, buy some are getting really bad. Only issue is some have newly hatched chicks at their side. Is it still safe to treat them as if they have URI? Also I went to remove the empty egg out from under the hen and there were a ton of ants. So I picked up the eggs and the chick, then her, and placed them up off the ground. Is it safe to use 7 dust even with the newly hatched babies?
    Thank you all!

    We have alot of allergies here, not 1 specific thing. Just causes alot of sneezing. There are ants all in their coop too. I need them out. N I need the nasty sneezing to stop.

    My chickens sneeze, but their nostrils are clear and breathing is silent. If your chickens seem to be having sinus troubles, it may be the dust (I know it makes me sneeze [​IMG]) or allergies, but it may also be a virus. Do they have mucus coming out of their nose?

    I know what to do, but is it safe to treat them with newly hatched chicks? Also is 7 dust safe around newly hatched chicks?
