    Hi everyone,

    I am a new chciken daddy and have had my girls for 5 weeks (they are 3-4 months old) recently they have started sneezing...im not sure what tbis means or if it is a problem...it has been in the upper 20s at night and 30's or 40's during the day... they stay mostly in the coop but i let them free range under supervision for a few hours too... thanks in advance for your advice...btw they are 2 barred rocks and one sliver wynandot (i think)

    Hello from Kansas, Horse-n-bunny, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! I would advise posting over in the Emergencies, Diseases, Injuries & Cures thread - I'm sure some folks over there will be able to give you some good advice. Best wishes!

    hi and thanks for your response.... i clean it every week (only 4 weeks so far) and always put fresh pine shavings down and try to keep it clean as possible... my avatar is picture of my coop and it has a small sliding dorr about 4" big for ventilation as well as the door itself into the coop which i leave open about a half inch when it isnt fully open...otherwise its open and they can go into the run below or out in the yard to free range when im home... anyadvice is apppreciated

    thanks and peace

    That sounds good. I think you should post in the emergencies section, just click on the link I've posted for you above. Sneezing can be caused by something simple like dust or something more serious like illness. Give as much detail as possible, like change of habits etc to help the other members help you. Good luck!
