    New Mommy to a beautiful Tiel

    Hi everyone.

    I'm new to the forum, also new Mommy to a beautiful white /yellow cockatiel named Dusty. I've had him for about a week now, his around 7-8 weeks old.

    I'm having trouble to understand why he sneezes often, sometimes multiple times at once, some sites says it can be caused by particles in air such as dust etc. We stay in an area where there is a lot of dust... What can I do?

    Please help

    I do not think you need to be concerned. More than likely he has dander from his baby down feathers getting into his nostrils.

    If he were getting sick, and sneezing, you would see symptoms as runny poops, watery eyes, all puffed up, sleeping constantly, lethargy, and especially constant tail bobbing. And not eating or drinking.

    They also can get tiny pieces of the shells from the cracked seeds they eat in their nostrils, or dust in the air.

    Welcome to the forum! Ellen gave you great advice and I think it is his downy feathers as well.
