    is it possible for my silkie to have allergies because when he's inside the coop he sneezes a lot the second he goes outside he stops any clue what's up?

    Is your coop either damp or excessively dusty? I'm thinking the possibility of mold, ammonia or dust irritation.

    It was built less than A week ago so I'm guessing no to mold and ammonia and maybe yes to dust because it hasn't been aired out or anything cuz of the cold so maybe saw dust?
