Any idea what would make a chick cough?

Came here from your other post.
I think she may have a respiratory infection, you may be able to get antibiotics from a vet. I would keep her warm and inside, separated from the others if possible. Is she eating and passing droppings normally?

Yes. Eating, drinking and pooping fine. The cough has stopped now.
I don't see the rest of the post that I put with the video,but in short (because it's midnight now - lol) I started adding garlic and ACV to the water and after about a week there was no change in the sneezing/reaching so I put de powder in with the chick crumb and after about 2 days of eating it the chick started that awful cough but that only lasted about 30mins or so and I've not heard it since.

Just another observation. This chick nearly always has 1 eye shut always the right one. I tried to have a look but couldn't see anything. When I put the chick down there were bubbles all around the eye. I didn't get a pictures of the bubbles but this is the eye.

Just consulted with a Vet. He has said that it is more than likely Mycoplasma. If I want to bring the chick in to the surgery it will be a £25 consultation fee and then £8 injection fee, plus a follow up injection a couple of days later, for another £8. Highly annoying when I could buy a supply of Tylan 50 from a shop if I was in the US :/
