    We have four chicks, three about a month and the tiny peep is 3 weeks. One of them, a month old Americana, sneezes repeatedly every time we let her run in the yard. She never did in the brooder and doesn't while at rest/roosting.

    Can chickens be pollen sensitive? She's not in distress, no visible discharge or other signs of concern.

    Anyone come across this before?

    Other than sneezing is she showing any other sign of being unwell, like not eating, lethargic, dull eyes, droopiness, labored breathing, etc?

    None! Healthy, active, eating and drinking and generally being her nutty self!

    I'm thinking maybe it's just the moisture in the taller grass? Even though it was sunny and gorgeous I sat in the yard with them and my bum was damp after just a few minutes.

    Could be just the sunlight. Ever get sneezy just from bright light? :)
