    They are eating and drinking, but are all sneezing.
    While it is kinda cute. I am now worried. The weather here has been CRAZY. Warm one day. Cold and blustery the next. And damp. Last night went from cold enough to snow to warm enough to rain and then cold back to warm. Like worrying about the horse getting sick on me isnt enough. [​IMG]

    So I am going to make them some oatmeal with some vitamins in it and feed em that as well.

    Check ammonia levels first. You'd be surprised what it's like at their level. Winter is when this happens more since people tend to close up coops too tight.
