    I just got my six silkie hens three days ago and I have noticed that they have all started sneezeing. They also have runny brown poop. They are still eating and drinking but I am starting to get worried! This is my first time having chickens, so any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

    I'm fairly new to this as well but a dark brown runny poop is supposed to happen once every 8-10 normal poops I think. Also I have 4.5 month old pullets and they've been sneezing somewhat regularly but seem okay. Maybe its just allergies or something. Other than that are they acting fine?

    Thanks for the reply! Otherwise they are acting normal, eating, clucking, and scratching about. I hope it's just allergies, but I will keep an eye on them. Good luck with your chickens!
