    Our pet rooster, Scooter (a red cochin bantam), has started sneezing some. No drainage I can see and seems to feel normal. He will stop mid-crow to sneeze. He's with two hens and they are not sick. What could be wrong and what can I do?

    Maybe this is stupid but can chickens have allergies? Did you do any coop cleaning lately... could he have inhaled dust or something? Sometimes I feel useless on here... but hopefully someone who actually knows something will reply!

    No recent cleaning, but it has dried out here this week. It was very rainy for the last couple of weeks until about Friday. Maybe it is dry and getting dusty? No new chickens introduced with him just him and his two ladies that have been together for months...hopefully you are right and it is just dander or allergies... : )
