    So from what I've gathered from the forum, sneezing is ok as long as there is not any other symptoms. I noticed the past 2 nights there is some moisture around the nostrils. Should I start treating them?? I just don't want this to get out of hand....

    Thanks!!!!!

    Sneezing doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. It could be dust from the brooder the is irritating them. Mine also sneeze if the take a drink of water and get some in their nostrils. They sneeze and send it spraying.

    I wouldn't be terribly concerned unless you see other symptoms such as rattling or discharge.
