Sneezing after eating


Hello,
My young blue mountain lorikeet sneezing after eating her food. My previous lorikeet never did this.
I’m feeding her Harrison’s as a mushy cereal like consistency. I’ve tried adjusting the texture. Never fails- she sneezes. She is almost five months old.


Answer:

Hi,

This could just be a behavioral thing, or she may be getting food in her nose while eating. But you might have her checked out by an avian vet to make sure she doesn’t have an issue like a malformed sinus or something not quite right.

Take care,

Brenda
