I have meaties and a few are sneezing. Now, this was right after I added pine shavings. Could it be the dust? I've kept them out of drafts. Their eyes all look clear and bright, they're active and w/o other symptoms. Help?

In the absence of any other symptoms and considering you just added shavings, I'd say its the dust.

A friend of mine used shavings for her newborn foals and would put them in a basket and shake them in the breeze (outside) to get the chaff-like dust out of the shavings. It was a very tedious process for a large birthing stall, but for a brooding box it shouldn't be too bad. I definitely plan to do it in my future brooder box though.
