This morning I noticed that my Pullet, lady, was kinda loudly sneezing I think? I brought her inside and she stopped after a few minutes. I didn't get a video but if she starts again I will. Could this just be her calling or expressing her dominance? She is fine otherwise and I don't know about poop. I don't know why a picture is helpful but anyway:

Does she have any secretions or crusts around her nostrils? Sometimes they can get a piece of feed or dust into the beak which can cause sneezing. Watch to see if she does this often. Yes, the dropping looks normal.

I will go check. Do you think that whatever was in her nostrils could have come out? Cuz' now she's fine and she stopped sneezing

Chickens can sneeze when they are eating, and from dusty conditions. It is not unusual for a sneeze, unless they do it every few minutes, when it could be a respiratory infection.
