    I have one chick that seems to sneeze somtimes when i give treats and she is excited. She is very energetic and moves well ,Eye's clear she looks and acts normal, I've never seen any mucus in her nosterials. Could It just be a freaky thing she dose when she gets to excited? A few day's ago I noticed it one time she did it like five times in a short period then that was it till today she did it again but this time just 1 littel sneeze then on till eating any Ideas????

    Watch and see. Every once and awhile I notice a little sneezing in my flock. If I hear too much of it I might get some antibiotic going. Many times I don't and the sneezing discontinues. Maybe give their pen a good cleaning.

    Hmm...I'm new to this, but one of my chickies used to sneeze a lot whenever she was eating/had just eaten scrambled eggs. At first I was afraid she was sick, but then I saw another one doing it, connected it with eating scrambled eggs, and realized they were smearing egg all over their beaks while eating. I think the sneezing was just a reaction to keep the nostrils clear.
