    I have chickens from 4 months & down. A few days ago we had heavy rain for 2 days now some of my chicks the 4 month olds are sneezing some have stopped but some still are & there has been no discharge from nostrils until today one of the younger ones that is a pet likes to be held while I was holding her she sneezed & clear watery like came out. Could it be a cold? What should I do? There are no other symptoms.

    Welcome to BYC. Make sure that your coop ventilation is good and that there is no ammonia odors from droppings. Sneezing frequently and nasal drainage can be a symptoms of a virus called infectious bronchitis. Usually it will run it's course in a few weeks. Dusty feed and coop conditions, snd mold can also cause those symptoms.
