    Hi just wondering what it means when a chicken sneezes alot? Is it serious or is it just a little cold?

    Keeper of the hens

    How often are we talking about? Chickens do sneeze quite often, some more than others, and often they do seem to catch colds and sneeze quite a lot for a few days. This usually clears up. Sneezing continuously and gasping / wheezing are signs of a more serious illness though.

    Are there any other symptoms? Is the chicken in question acting normally, eating and drinking?

    Try adding a little Apple Cider Vinegar to their water. A product called 'Poultry Spice' is supposed to help boost flock's immunity to colds and such and help them recover from them, too. You can buy it from farm shops, pet shops or online...I think Omlet stocks it.
    Hope this helps :)
