    Lilith sneezes once or twice a day, has since she was a chick. She is the picture of health. Lays regularly.
    What do you think? Is it just her?

    Could be she is particularly sensitive to something in her environment. Honestly, I have some birds who sneeze when they eat too fast or dustbathe. Ivy is the worst about sneezing when she eats, always has been. In the absence of other symptoms, I wouldn't worry.

    my meaties get hiccups all the time from gobbling down their food. it is hilarious sounding, isn't it?


    i agree with the Speckled one! just like people, cats, dogs etc. it is a healthy way to clear our sinuses and get rid of dust/dirt.


    enjoy those hiccups![​IMG]

    Quote:That must be what it is! Lilith is one for eating first, asking questions later (even if she's not sure it's food). She's a bit of a piglet.
