Why did my chicken die?

My silkie chicken, Olive, died a few days ago. I am unaware of the reasons as to why she died? She was sneezing, but she was playing and happy 2 hours before she past. Olive was 3 weeks old, did I keep the heat lamp on her too long? Was she too cold? Was this the common "BIRD FLU?"

I'm sorry to hear about your loss
Apart from the sneezing, did she show any other signs of anything being wrong. Poop normal? eating, drinking etc?
I am new to chicken breeding, but her poop was seemingly runnier than usual. Her head was down and she was very lazy.If it's a cold, could the sickness spread to the others?
A young chick with watery poo could possibly be coccidiosis. It is often seen in aging birds three to six weeks in age. I often feed medicated food to all my chicks and new adult birds medicated water.
