    Our two RIR pullets have smelly faces. No sneezing, gasping or discharge. They are eating and drinking fine too. Need suggestions about causes and treatment.

    Can you check their crops in the morning to make sure they are emptying? The only 3 things I know that smell bad are sour crop, canker, and coryza. Look inside their beaks for any yellow or grayish patches. I would keep an eye on them. Have you had them long?

    We have had them for a little more than a month. No signs of canker. Smell comes and goes.
