badeamari is on a distinguished road
I think my budgie is sneezing 5+ times in a row.

Hello. Please help me with my budgie.. he started sneezing (I think) really often (daily) and I'm really scared. When he does it, he sneezes like 5-10 times repeatedly..

He's the only one who does this. I have 3 other budgies.

Re: I think my budgie is sneezing 5+ times in a row.

I understand that shopping locally is more difficult, but you really need to have a digital Temperature /Humidity devise in your home. The digital devises provide 'relative humidity,' which as you know is the humidity level dependent on temperature. As a quick review, as temperature increases, its ability to hold moisture increases and likewise, the temperature falls, its ability to hold moisture decreases.

Point of all of that is; with a Parrot in the home, it is important to know what the relative humidity is, so you can add humidity or decrease it. A general goal is 45 to 55% relative humidity at 70 degrees F. Knowing the Natural Region your Parrot species is from also helps as some are from Jungles while others are from a dry Savanas.

Also, Parrots that have a powder base can pick-up the dust and result in a sneeze. Assure that you are bathing your Parrot (or misting) at least once a week.

A single Parrot sneezing could indicate that it has dust, a part of a feather, etc, caught in a nasal passage and may require having your Avian Professional flush it out.

Hope that this helps!
