    She's eating and drinking fine but has this sneeze/cough for a few weeks.
    I've wormed today and they've been getting ACV and garlic in their water.
    She's the only one of 62 hens that's doing it.
    Thoughts? Advise?

    If you have that many chickens and she is the only one sneezing and coughing for weeks, then I wouldn't think that it is anything serious. Most respiratory diseases, especially infectious bronchitis, can go through a whole flock pretty quickly. Are there any other symptoms, such as gasping, foamy eyes or nasal drainage? If she is eating and drinking, active and alert, maybe it is something in the environment, such as dust, bedding, or mold causing the sneezing.
