    I have 12 chicks i got about days ago to add to my flock. The first day i noticed some sneezing but no biggie. Then i noticed one of my speckled sussex was wheezing and sneezing a lot. Ive added nutri drench to the water because thats all i have at the moment. Sh doesn't seem to be wheezing today. I did notice this am that one of the gold sex links was doing this yawning thing and sneezing from time to time. Everyone is acting totally normal. Eating, drinking, pooping, chirping and running around. What should i do at this point I've never experienced this?

    I'm having problems with my flock and parasites too. Need to treat them. Don't let them go too long without treatment.

    You should check for pasty butt,that will kill your young chickens. How old are they?

    They're all different ages. Probably a week or 2 old. I have many different breeds

    Can you post photos of your brooder setup and the chicks?
    Any signs of watery eyes, nasal discharge, coughing, rales, etc.?
    What type of bedding are you using?

    Sneezing can be caused by many things - from environment (bedding, dusty feed, etc), not enough ventilation to respiratory illness.

    Yes one second. They are in a large tote for now but i will be moving them to my "mini coop" once i rehome all of my 6 week roos -_-. They are in my bathroom right now because I dont want my kids messing with them
    ]+to much lol. It is kind of chilly in there so i closed the ac vent. I believe it is pine shavings in their brooder. It's what I use in my other coops.
