    Look around to see if it is the same chickens sneezing, and for any dusty conditions or feed, or mold in the coop. Infectious bronchitis and other respiratory diseases can cause sneezing. Continuous sneezing, nasal drainage, crusty or swollen eyes, or noisy breathing might need treatment with an antibiotic such as Tylan or oxyteracycline. Here is a good link to read about IB, MG, ILT, and coryza: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
