    If there is any kind of discharge from the sneezing chicken's nose or eyes the sneezing is a sign of upper respiratory disease. Other chickens just sneeze because of the dust from their feed.

    My chickens like to preen each other, they'll just walk up to a chicken start their preening and expect the other to preen them as well...and they do!
