No this isn’t a euphemism; my chickens started sneezing this evening. We just recently bought them a new type of food as they are of an age where they don’t need the chick grower any more, and I filled their feeder with it for the first time. I expected it to be in the sort of pellet form the previous stuff was, but it is this quite fine powder. It seemed strange but it is supposed to be a good feed so I went with it.

Anyway I put their feeder down for them and am stood trying to count them to make sure everyone is in safely and I here this weird noise, and again, and again. By this point I am watching my chickens and ducks and they are all doing it! What can only be described as sneezing!

I am not sure what the deal is, so I took the food away and threw them some scratch. They are free range and spent the day eating bugs and plants and stuff, so I am not worried about them being too hungry. But I am really not sure what to make of the sneezing!

I love to know what you think so please rate my post or leave me a comment. If you really liked this post maybe you would consider sharing it. Thank you.
