Chicken hayfever!
« on: April 02, 2012, 11:53 »
I have a Rhode Island Red who is about 6-7months old, she has recently developed a sneeze which happens quite a few times a day since the pollen levels are high, she hasn't got a runny nose, her eyes and comb are perfectly fine, she's laying, eating, running around as normal wondered if this could be hayfever?? Any suggestions/experiences please!!!

I would say it is more likely to be a respiratory infection  :(
Staffies are softer than you think.

Very well could be respiratory, but if she is fine otherwise, I wouldn't rule out something like hayfever.

I had a Rhode Island Red who sneezed every summer, but never in the winter.  She was a really healthy bird otherwise.  I'm sure she had hayfever

I used to buy her allergy tablets.  One would see her right for several weeks.  I know we are not supposed to give the chooks human tablets, but my vet said they wouldn't harm her.

Another possibility, if the ground is as dry with you as it is here is dust. One of mine sometimes neezes after a dustbath when the earth is so dry.
