I have 3wk old chicks.. Just noticed some sneezing.. I felt a little wet sneeze on my arm.. Is this a cause for concern? These are hatchery birds if that makes any difference. I have had these chicks from 3days old..

Sneezing isn't a problem. They do it for the same reasons we do it... dust in the air, water in our nose, etc. If they have runny noses, goopy eyes, or noisy breath, then they need attention. Because though it may look like a cold, chickens don't get "colds." They get serious respiratory infections.
