    When should you be conserned about sneezing, my girls are 9-10 wks old and some are sneezing and have some white crusty on their beaks. I am totally new to this. Taking to the vet is not and option ( $) Are there treatments you can do?

    How often are they sneezing? Have you noticed any other symptoms? Swollen and/or bubbly eyes can point to a respiratory infection.

    I'm not exactly sure what could be causing their sneezing. The only course of treatment I know of for respiratory infections is antibiotics (Tylan, usually. Not sure how effective duramycin is on respiratory infections). I would monitor them for now. If they are sneezing constantly, you've got a problem on your hands.

    Anyway, here's a bump! Hopefully someone who has encountered this condition before will come along and advise you. Good luck! [​IMG]

    Thanks, I'll watch them. It could have been due to the dust, they were in their coop most of the day yesterdat due to bad weather.
