    Please help!!! I noticed my Pullet this morning has a lil icky bits of snot on both nostrils, and when I looked closely it was a little runny.

    I have also noticed for a few days now her eyes seem a bit more droopy than my other pullets.

    She is eating very well, seems happy, runs to see me, poos look fine!

    What could this be?! Ive only had her 12 days now!

    Quote:Sneezing may be nothing more than an environmental change, but if it was a symptom of something more serious, even if they seemed to recover, they can still be permanent carriers. Just saying that antibiotic use is not something you want to start, since it really does not eradicate the disease forever with some of these ailments, and does absolutely nothing for viruses.
