Questions & Answers
My 5 year old Indian Ringneck parrot has orange discoloration on her nostrils, and is plucking herself excessively on her belly and her wings. She is also sneezing 3 times in a row about every half hour.
Thanks for your question. It sounds like your parakeet has 2 separate problems. One is the sneezing, the other is feather destructive behavior.
The first step in diagnosing and correcting these problems is a thorough physical exam by an experienced avian veterinarian. The sneezing may be related to sinus infections, environmental changes, or other reasons. Feather destructive behavior is a complex behavioral problem and can be challenging to manage.
