Breathing problem

Hi, bought a few new hens but notice that they are coughing/sneezing a lot at night. Anyone know what this is and whats the best cure for it? Thanks

It can be dust
Change your bedding to dust free. I had this prob myself and started using blue frog shavings. Also get a bag to see weed from.redmills it helps them breath easy after that problem

I have one hen that does it all the time but there is nothing wrong with her at all so I just make sure the place is well cleaned and sprayed out
