    maybe a little something is in her nose irritating it a bit like dust or a bit of food. make sure she has water deep enough to dunk her head in so she can clean out her nostrils I'm glad she isn't showing any other symptoms, so just keep an eye on her.

    Pick her up and put your hear up against her lung/chest ( best way is to lift up wing and press ear against that area).
    If you do not hear any wheezing or strong crackles, then most likely it is nothing to worry about.
    Just like us humans, chickens can get allergies and common colds too (esp. with weather and temp. changes).
    Just keep her dry and keep an eye on her for any more symptoms [​IMG]
