How do you know when sneezes mean something bad?

I have 10 - 3 week old girls. They are sneezing here and there. Eyes look great, energy good, eating and drinking fine and running around like crazy. However they will shake their head like a dog kind of does when something tickles its face and sneeze or what sounds like a quick blow out of their nose. I have seen NO discharge of any kind. One of them "might" of had the tiniest drop of what just looked like water near her nose.

I changed their bedding today because the tiny feathers are everywhere now that more adult feathers are coming in. Could the feathers be tickling their noses?

Thank you so much

I don't think their feathers are tickling their noses. :p Sometimes chickens sneeze. Just keep watching them for discharge or labored breathing. Otherwise just enjoy your new babies.

If there is any discharge and it is clear is that normal? I am enjoying them. I have over read on here though and all the scary stories have made me nervous

A clear spray/drop here or there is nothing to worry about. Mucus membranes are moist. When you sneeze clear spray will come out sometimes, doesn't mean your sick. Just your body doing it's job to keep debris out.
