I have a 1 to 2 week old chick that has been sneezing for 2 days now. Sometimes she sneezes twice in a row, sometimes once, and it happens quite often. She shakes her head before sneezing, and sleeps more than others, although it's been like this since we got her. There was another chick that was sneezing until we moved them outside, then she stopped. However current sneezy chick started sneezing after we moved them out, and she is the only one. Could first sneezy chick have passed something on to her? Sometimes she 'forgets' to sneeze when there is a large commotion. I'm really worried, is there anything I can do?

Is the chicks showing any other symptoms, beside the sneezing? What brooder bedding material are you using? What are you feeding them?

They have sand as bedding, and are eating starter feed. When sleeping, the chick tilts her head up, which falls slightly, and her mouth opens and closes slightly. This repeats several times.
