My Cockatiel (Chicken) is 10 months old and she started sneezing a lot today at night and her sneezes were off they were more squeaky and I’m really worried I’ve read post were the bird gets better and it was a one time thing and others where it’s a huge disease. I did vacuum earlier today and my room is a lot drier then normal so I don’t know if these are factors for that

please help

Those things could be a cause. Or, if your air is really dry right now, that could cause it.
But birds hide their illness so you might want to take your baby to the vet.

Are they wet sneezes or dry? Dry are usually normal. Could be the dry air. You can try adding a humidifier/vaporizer. Wet sneezes can be a sign of illness and I would do a vet check.
