    O.K., not sure why, but my one year old bantam cochin was making a kinda sneezing sound over and over, but otherwise seemed fine. she isn't sneezing now, but it seemed strange. Why do they do this?

    I have had chickens sneeze before. There are parasites that get into the nasal cavities, and birds with Cayasa sneeze, if the eyes arent watering and the sneezing has stopped I wouldn't worry about it. If the bird starts sneezing again, first thing to do is separate it from the others, than we can figure out whats wrong.

    Thanks, No more sneezing, no watery eyes. If anything comes up I will let you know and seek some answers. It just sounded funny when she was doing it.
