    I have a couple in my flock that are sneezing.
    I have so pellet and cracked corn that I am feeding and they free range.I also add fresh veggies and fruits a few times a week.
    I was told antibiotics in the water, advice needed.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Chickens do sneeze from time to time just like we do. Do they have any other symptoms? Are they acting normal, eating and drinking ok? Is there any discharge from the nostrils or eyes? If not i would not be too worried. You could also pop by the emergence injury disease and cure section here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
