Some of my chickens sneeze after every 5 minutes. is this the beginning of CRD. should I give them anti-allergy or Salbutamol. both obviously have different mechanism of actions, so thats why i want to ask the experts of what to do please.

Regards & best wishes to all chicken lovers :)

P.S:-
the ages of the chickens are from 3 months and above

You need to take a look in your chickens environment and see what is causing them to sneeze. Examples are dust, feed dust, ammonia fumes from soiled bedding, dander, improper ventilation, pollen, pesticide use, chemicals in the environment and so on.

If it were a respiratory disease, there would definitely be more symptoms than you're seeing and would require antibiotics and/or culling sick birds.
Salbutamol is Albuterol which should not be used on chickens and it has no effect on respiratory diseases. Do not medicate with anything if it's an environmental problem which can be corrected or eliminated.
