    I have 8 isa browns, one was sneezing for a week or so, now another is. No snot in their vents, they all eat and drink with no problem, and run around like normal. They have maple shavings for bedding since day one. And they go outside all day in the run.
    Should I be worried or just normal stuff? Never heard of a chicken with allergies, but possible maybe

    Sometimes sneezing can be from too much dust, but it's possible your hens have picked up a mild respiratory infection which may run it's course over the coming weeks. Make sure the bedding isn't moldy and your birds have good ventilation in the coop. If it becomes worse you may need to find a vet.
