    What do you call the thing that hangs off the chickens neck? When does it grow in?

    Why are my chicks sneezing?

    Quote:They are called wattles and they usually start growing in at about three months old give or take.

    Quote:Are they sneezing a lot and does it seem like they have drainage from their eyes or beaks? If the answer to those two questions are "no" then they could be sneezing for the same reason you do. It is "normal" for them to sneeze on occasion if they have breathed in some dust.
