    So is there anyway to flush out a pullets nasal cavity/sinuses? I have a chick who just sneezes all the time. No other symptoms, but a forum member suggested something stuck in her nose. Now I know that they dont make a nettie pot for chickens, but has anyone ever done this or have any suggestions?

    Haha, netti pot for chickens, funny. I don't know that it would be easy to do or a good idea, my concern would be getting water into their lungs. If you were to try it anyway I would go with an oral syringe.

    well I just tried the needless syringe, but to no luck... just got a bit of runny snot out... she did not like that... I am tempted to get the can of air and blow it out, but I dont want to hurt her brain or anything. LOL I should have payed more attention in Biology and Zoology... cept I dont remember them talking about flushing out chicken sinuses... why did I go to college again?
