I no there are quite a few forms on this but none of them seem to help me
I have 3 chicks of 1 and a half weeks of age and I noticed one of them sneezing and I think it has spread to the others they don't have wood chips as a bed so there is no dust they just have a grip mat and are cleaned out regularly. I was just worried in case I need to give them any meds and if so what do I need to give them? This is my first time hatching chicks so any help is welcome!! :D:D:D

Have you put any Probiotic in there water or used Save-A-Chick ??

Is there any kind of smoke around them including people smoking
in the area ...

Drafts of any kind ??

Do you have a photo of the brooder ??

There is no smoke anywhere and the only draft would be the opening and closing of my bedroom door

Not the best picture sorry

Is a good enough photo of the situation of the brooder and
a nice set up ...


Could you get some Probiotic from the feed store and add
it to the water ??



Oh one other thing if you could boil them up a couple
of egg's and feed one now and later another just remove
the shell and mash up real good and serve the egg has
a lot of the vitamins and nutrients them chicks need ..

I discovered this evening that my 6 week old chicks are sneezing. Clear eyes and everything else is fine, but they are definitely sneezing. Any help or advice?

My 4.5 week olds are sneezing, too. Will be getting some probiotics ASAP. As for right now...boiled eggs it is. :)
