    It started two days ago, I thought she had eating something that had hurt her throat or something. This pullet, Rusty, seems to have been born under a very unlucky star, or she has a death wish. She got a nasty yeast and bacterial infection a while ago, before that, sour crop. During that time she ate a rubber band, tried to eat styrofoam, stole and ate a really big chunk of bread from my hand, almost got it stuck in her throat.

    Now the poor thing is sneezing and today she also began to wheeze when she breathes. She is moving around and eating, but I don't know what these symptoms mean. Her poop looked normal yesterday.

    Respiratory infections can be viral, bacterial or fungal. You can look up treatments for each and start eliminating.
    Throat wheezing could also indicate gape worms which live in their throats.

    Hope you figure things out.
