    OK...not sure if this is a problem or not. My birds have been sneezing on a regular basis for about a month now. No nasal discharge, no labored breathing or rales. They have not gone off feed and seem to be otherwise doing well. Is this something I should worry about, or could it just be that the dust from the bedding and their own dander is causing them to sneeze excessively?

    I had a probelm with my mille fleur bantam cochins sneezing terribly. When I removed the shavings from the coop, the sneezing issues totally cleared up.
