    OK, I went over to lock the coop, Feed Buster and put him in his cage, I checked the hens, First, The R.I.R mix Who was first showing symptoms (Poor spelling, ignore please) Sneezing, Runny feces, and Squishy Crop, A Brown leghorn also is showing these symptoms, Buster also was showing symptoms, except for the Sneezing, Does anyone know what this is and how to treat it?

    EDIT: When the R.I.R Sneezes, It sounds like a cross between The Sneeze and a Cough, She looks like shes in pain
    The brown leghorn sounds the same, and thats the only sounds that the two make at all
    The little chick(Buster) refuses to eat and will walk around

    Most disease don't have such a variety of symptoms. Usually there will be respiratory symptoms, or possibly diarrhea. It could be a combination of things, or an environmental problem. Could the ones in the coop be sneezing/coughing because of dust, mold, or something else?
