    I have purchased 2 hens and a rir rooster two weeks ago. I was out working aound the pen when I noticed my girls were sneezing. I of course paniced. I have read, that they will sneeze upon molting. I am brand new to chicken farming, so please bear with me. We have had two extremely windy days the last two days and the chickens seem to be scratching the pen more lately showing more dirt. One seems to cough occasionally. Severe storms hit Monday. I am keeping a close eye on them, as these are the only symptoms. I am seeing a few more feathers around the pen to. The girls are acting normal and seem fine otherwise. In fact, they let me hand feed the thru the fence! All and any advice is greatly appreciated. Worried chicken mom.
