No and no.

How old is he? Sneezing without other symptoms could be infectious bronchitis if it is occuring every few minutes. If it only occurs occasionally or during eating, it could be dust from feed or the coop bedding, or poor air circulation.

It's every few minutes. The sneezing started today. He has been with my 6 hens.

Infectious bronchitis is a virus that will quickly go through the flock, but usually only lasts a few weeks. Most grown chickens recover from it without any treatment, but hens may lay eggs with wrinkled shells or slow down laying for a bit. Other diseases such as mycoplasma and coryza would usually have more symptoms. A vet or local extension agent could help if you want to get him tested.
