    Our lil' Brahma Jolene has been sneezing for a week or more and it seems she has a little liquid in her chirp. I've been putting vinegar in her water all week. What else can I do before antibiotics? Is it simply a type of chicken cold? Other than those symptoms she's perfectly healthy.

    She may have a virus such as infectious bronchitis which won't respond to antibiotics, or she could have mycoplasma or one the other other respiratory diseases which may respond to AB's. She also could be sneezing from something irritating to her such as dust or ammonia fumes. Here is some reading on respiratory diseases: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
