    I noticed last week that a couple of the girls were sneezing. While I was out there last night I noticed it again.
    Is this something I should be worried about?
    I have a vitamin to place in thier water for stress conditions. The tempature has been really cold here in the teens last night etc...

    Chickens sneeze doesnt mean necessarily that it could be anything more than that. I would add ACV(raw, nonfiltered apple cider vinegar)(not grocery store you can get it at some feed stores or healthfood stores or order online) to the water. I would watch for other signs like crusty eyes or nostrils. Then be worried if that happens. Its been really rainy here and had a few sneezing some but thats all it was. As soon as the rain stopped a opened my coop doors and put up my screen so they could get more fresh air and put the ACV in the water and no more sneezing. I think locking them up during the rain( I think its a little dusty) had something to do with it.
