    Why are all my chickens sneezing and have runny noses? Most are about 2-3 months old[​IMG]

    [​IMG] How long have you had the chicks? Have you just gotten them, or were they raised by your hens? What other symptoms do they have, diarreha, won't eat or drink, eyes looking off to the side with pupils not straight, standing alone fluffed up not doing much? From the many problems I've had lately with my chicks that started sneezing and runny nose, I've learned that these symptoms can be the same in many diseases. Since they are relatively young chicks (pullets) it could make a difference if you have just gotten them and put them in a pen where you had other chickens, or previously had other chickens. If this is the case, it could be Coccidiosis a parasite that they've picked up? Folks would probably need to know more information before they could make an educated guess. What else can you tell us about them and how long have they had any symptoms?

    Glad to hear that. Maybe they were just having a reaction to something in the enviornment. Hope they continue to do well. [​IMG]
