    I just got two new Silkies about 14 weeks old and one of them has a blocked nose and is sneezing and its poo is runny. The other one is fine. Please help, I don't know what to do.

    HI, I suggest you take it to a vet if there is one in your area, I recently lost a rooster to the same thing. He was sneezing for a couple weeks before he was unable to crow and a day or 2 after he stopped crowing he was gone. He basicaly suffocated. MY vet is not an avian vet but she did an autopsy and didnt find anything but capillaria worms so dont wait like I did cause respirtory problems work quick with chickens.

    Thanks I'll take her to the vets ASAP. But it is probably a different cause as I am in Australia [​IMG]
