    I just got some Brahma hens and they have runny noses, I have had them for about 4 weeks and they have been like this the whole time, they are very healthy otherwise, and laying eggs still

    Could be a reaction to something environmental, like heavy ammonia at their level. It's common this time of year when coops are more closed down. Is the discharge clear?

    It is clear, and they are the only ones with it, none of my other hens have the runny noses

    Hard to say. If there are no other symptoms, then I just dont know. Maybe it's still environmental and your hens are used to it, but these are not? With only that symptom, it's anybody's guess, really.
