One of my chickens i have noticed has been sneezing much more than usual. I haven't had this before so i wasn't sure what was up with her. The first thing i checked was her nostrils but there wasnt any liquid at all so there was nothing blocking her breathing through her nose. I also noticed yesterday her poo was quite watery. :/ Does anyone know whats up with her?

Sneezing can be caused by an ammonia odor in the coop, dust from feed or the bedding, from moldy wet conditions, and by respiratory diseases such as infectious bronchitis and others. Look around at your coop, and make sure that you have excellent ventilation, it is not too hot or too wet or too dusty. Mold is difficult to control, so look for any wet spots. Here is a good link to read on the various respiratory diseases: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044

s Thank you for the information the link was very helpful it narrowed it down to a few things, I'm checking around my coop this morning for any mould, damp patches etc. Thank you :)
