    It is possible that he just has dirt or dust in his nose. Chicken respiratory infections usually have symptoms like nasal and eye discharge and gasping or noisy, labored breathing. If the sneezing continues, you could separate him to look for other symptoms and reduce the chance of passing any infection.

    You could check out this link and scroll down to the section on respiratory disease: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/517234/medical-treatments-recommended-by-bycers#post_6580204

    I know you are new to BYC forum, but in the future you probably should post health questions in the section of the forum for illness and emergencies.

    I hope your rooster turns out to be fine.
