    I bought 9 chicks from tractor supply laat week on tuesday...all seemed healthy one or two sneezed very infrequently when digging around... Now today i come home all seem healthy ,eatting,drinking and running around but a lot of sneezing going on??? Did i make a mistake i really do not want to get my older birds sick in a few weeks if these little ones have anything... What would cause this :/

    I'm using pine shavings and dumor chick starter I don't think there's any does or anything that's what I can't figure out and there's no other symptoms. What's worrying me is I had to call myself last year because of mg I really don't want to introduce that too late older pullets that are about to lay. I guess I will have to give it another couple days and see or should I just start them on some kind of antibiotics now just in case

    Over a year ago in the coop yes my chickens don't free range.. I had added seven Birds in October they've all been okay. I have these new chicks in the house in a back bathroom.... the state vet said mg only last about six weeks in the environment at best?
