    Bird sneezed a bunch..Should I be worried?

    My conure was sneezing several times earlier which worried me. She was eating some of her seed and sneezed once then got off her bowl and she was like doing something similar to when they're tired and content and they make the that chewing noise. It was similar to that but without that...

    Cozzi is having a hard time breathing

    Cozzi is my 12 year old cockatiel. Over the course of the past month, he has been doing a lot of sneezing, and open beak breathing. He has always been active, but is not playing anymore and he becomes easily exerted. His diet still seems good, and he eats well. Once I noticed him having symptoms...

    Urgent Bird sneezing and spitting up?

    My Cinnamon Green Cheek (about a year old) has been bobbing his head up and down very quickly and spitting up seeds. The seed is always whole, so I assume this is normal? There's no water with the spit up seeds. He also bobs his head like that when he's excited. But, i've noticed sneezing, too...

    We had several wildfires in our area today; the air is thick with smoke and I have done my best to keep my house smoke free (due to my asthma and bird companions). I have 3 baby peach faced lovebirds, all are 4 weeks old. One is sneezing a bit with watery discharge ... no other symptoms. I know...

    Urgent Not Sure if Sneezing?

    Today I have Dawson out, and he's making sneezing noises, but I don't know if he's actually sneezing or not? He's not doing the head shake when he does the noise. Is this a sneeze? Something worse? Is he just mimicking? (He's a black capped conure) Update: he's playing now and not making the...
