My chicken has been sneezing- unfortunatly I don’t know which one bc I didn’t check and she looks like on of her sisters. It’s normal for my birds to sneeze every once in a while if they get a feather up their nose or something but this girl isn’t doing those petite sneezes. She’s having sneezing fits where she makes a loud honk-squeak about 5 times scaring the little chicks. I suspect upper respiratory infection bc she has no symptoms of anything else and egg production has been ok. I’ve heard 2 sneezing fits and the first time I didn’t think anything of it but the second time she caught my attention when I realized something was wrong. Can anyone help me figure it out?

If it's a URI you should see nasal exudate. It may be something stuck in one of her nostrils.
