    So I have 5week old Sp Sussex in my brooder in the shed. It has a heat source and is sheltered etc. Last week I thought I heard a few sneezes but when I sat for 5 mins and listened no one else sneezed. I figured food, dust etc. This week I heard it again. It could be food- I am always putting down food then I hear them sneeze..? No signs of watery eyes or nasal discharge but when I picked one of the chicks up I could hear them breathing. Not wheezy but loudish..
    Are they sick? And it doesn't seem to be progressing fast so? Ideas? Should I get some antibiiotics this weekend?
