    15 week old pullet (NHR)
    sneezing for maybe14 weeks, sneezing gotten no worse, really.

    at times, loud and watery poop; at other times poop is perfect!
    housing, deep litter, small coop with 4 other birds, good ventilation

    attempting to do something about sneezing....

    But these lesions, which have been present for some time concern me.
    And notice the dryness of her comb; all but one of my other six birds have dry looking combs.

    This is Violet, and comb wise, she is the most lesioned.

    Tell me it's nothing :eek:

    Maybe just routine wear and tear? or mosquitoes??

    BTW, that's nothing but dirt in her nostril--I think, I hope--she is a pretty wild dustbather!!

    And here is Jane, the other one with lesions, though she has only a couple, compared to Violet's half dosen or so.

    Jane's poops are always normal, yet she also, like all seven birds, has been dry-sneezing off and on for 14 or so weeks of their 15 weeks of life

    Don't the combs seem dry. I've never had chickens before, so I don't know. But one bird's comb looks much better than the other six.

    Also noticed a very tiny (real tiny) cut on Violet's comb, more like a tiny little dot of blood--funny.

    I think you can make out the lesions in these pics..
