    I sold a 2 week old silkie chick. It was at my house for a week, no problems. Guy picked up yesterday and emailed me today . Said chick is sick and sneezing, told him to isolate asap. What do u think it is? Any treatment suggestions? I want to help him.

    If i'm reading your post right, you had the chick and then gave/sold it to someone else? Did he put the chick on isolation, if not, it may have picked up something from his flock?

    Yes, the chick was not sick in my care. Would have never sold him if it was. He has had it for oneday and emailed me. I didnt hatch these just got them from another respectable byc breeder. I am gonna email him to make sure he didnt put them with his flock.

    If sneezing is the only symptom, it could just be dust or some such irritant.
