    I've noticed my chickens sneeze from dust in the air or getting water up their nostrils, but lately i've noticed one of my chickens sneezing for no apparent reason. She sneezes usually twice in a row (when she hasn't eaten or been in dusty areas for a few minutes) and she has sneezed out some moisture on occasion also.
    does she have some kind of cold (the weather is cooling off here), and is there anything I can or should do about it? Should I be concerned about her passing it on to the other chickens?! [​IMG]

    Chickens do not catch colds like people....They catch diseases....It could be a respiratory disease, sinusitis?
    I am not a vet...I use this for my Respiratory Disease my pullets have...Super Boost mixed in water container and Oxy Tetra -a in another...Mine have the LT Virus....

    Ok thanks!
    does anyone know how I can know for sure if my chicken has a lung disease, (without a pricey vet bill)? And where can i find things to give my chicken to help with these diseases!

    A vet is the only one who can successfully diagnose your Chicken....Either Cull or spend the money to find out...?
