    How old?
    Have they been vaccinated?
    Medicated feed?
    Temp they are kept at?
    Draft free brooder?

    What bedding are you using?

    Any sinus discharge?

    This information may help narrow it down.

    At six days I would likely still have some paper towel over the shavings. But if they are not eating it that is not an issue.

    From what you have written I would wager they are burrowing in the shavings and reacting to the dust in it. Nothing to worry about.
