    Young Caique Obsessed With Nose

    Bird nostril sounds

    Hello, My green cheek Conure started making little noises as if there was something in his nose, there isn’t any discharge and he’s been sneezing every once in a while and he’s never done this before so I’m a little nervous. It’s in the middle of the night here so I can’t contact a vet. He’s...

    Something in his nose

    I noticed boogers in both of my cockatiels nose. This happened before but the vet just removed them and he seemed fine. I’m not sure how to remove them or if I should remove it? Does anyone know what I should do next? (His behavior is normal overall.)

    Pictures Is this nostril shape/color normal for a GCC?

    This is my second GCC(yellow-sided GCC) Kiro, and she's about 6 months old. Recently I noticed that her nostrils have different colour/shape to my first GCC Milo's and it kinda worries me. Compared to her older brother's, they look distinctively pinkish and swollen and it seems like the degree...

    Bird in Nose

    Our new GCC likes to put her beak in my husband's nose. She is not biting him, just putting her beak in his nose. Does anyone else have a bird who does this?
