    I have a 9 week old rooster that has been sneezing on and off since yesterday. I got a hold of him today and looked him over and except for the sneezing he looks OK. His nose isn't running, his eyes look fine, and his weight seems good. What else should I look for?

    Some sneezing is normal, but if you want an idea of what to watch for, check THIS out. Good luck!

    I only grew concerned because it was not the "something tickled my nose" sneeze I have heard from the chickens before. It may just be his way of sneezing though and I had never heard it. Like I said he so far seems fine. Good thing cuz I now have a 10 week old cochin in the house that apparently got attacked by something. When we found him/her we thought she was dead - laying all goofy, head twisted weird. Then I touched him and he jumped. He has sme small wounds like scratches on his head and is in shock - but I have got him to drink and he is sitting up. He eyeballed the food I offered but didn't want to eat it - I wonder if he is holding out for treats instead. This might just be an elaborate ploy to get inside where it is warmer...
