I have two chicks about four weeks and I’ve had them about a week now. They both are sneezing I believe and it started today. When they sneeze a liquid comes out which I think might be water. They rub their noses on their surrounding so it’s obviously bothering them. I don’t know what to do.

What kind of litter are you using? It could be fine dust particles in the litter causing the problem or ammonia fumes from soiled bedding.

I would pull them out of their brooder, it would be the easiest way to confirm dawg's suggestion that it has something to do with the brooder itself. If they stop then it's their home that is bothering them.

it could just be normal, our chicks sneezed a lot when they were growing, but they never had runny noses. when did the snot start, like after they were sneezing for a bit or right when they sneezed?
