This is sort of a half and half question. It belongs in two forums but I opted to put it in this one... hopefully its the right place. I picked up a chick grower mash from one of the local grain elevators. Is mash really this messy? I just started feeding them the mash recently and I have noticed that they always seem to have "leftovers" on their mouths after they are done feeding. Is it possible that the mash could also make them sneeze from inhaling the dust? I was thinking the reason their nostrils look yellow or dusty is because the warmth of their breath makes the skin around there warm and moist, and then when they shove their beaks into the feeder/mash, it's sticking to those warm moist areas. They aren't acting sick other than occasionally sneezing. They were not sneezing and had no yellow around their nostrils prior to me starting them on the mash, which is also yellow (they obviously have corn in it). Any insight would be appreciated. I've already been administering oxytetracycline in their water (as per the recommendation of the guys at the grain elevator) just on the off chance it's not the mash.
