I have a baby chick that is about a week old he is sneezing and making a strange noise that sounds like weezing. He has been doing this for about two days, but it has gotten worse today. What could it be?

Is this chick on shavings? Could be dust from that and wheezing might be that it ingested some.
Put on paper towels.

Do you have only one chick? What set up do you have in your brooder? Wood shavings or cedar? Cedar bedding is bad for chicks.

I have 11 other chicks they are on paper towels. He actually has stopped sneezing and weezing now, so maybe it was something he was breathing in. I am keeping a close eye on him

Keep a close eye on him. It may have been he ingested something or got his face dipped in the water bowl a little too deep. Hopefully everything is ok now.
