OO oo i got this one! lol

My budgie bobby kept making the sneezing noise too. I came on the forum and they weren't really sure, but we all figured that it was him having trouble regurgitating. Later on, Bobby was playing in his bath, and somehow his head went under, i got him out and calmed him down. and he was making that sneezing noise again.

So I'm pretty sure you dont have to worry. Your budgie will be okay, I think its just like how we cough to get something out of our throats. It will eventually stop. But if you can see that your budgie has trouble breathing or something serious, you should contact an avian vet immediately

Your budgie sounds like he has a cold, or something up his nose! I'd take him to an avian vet, just to be sure.

Find one near you here:

If it's a little "tss" Then it's probably normal, but if it's different, ^^

how dry is the air in your house? when the humidity is very low, they get dry inside. try a humidifier and see if it clears up. coco has the same thing, an hour with the humidifier on and he stops
if you live a humid area, then i would advise a vet trip

Some "sneezing" is normal for budgies. It cleans out their nares. I wouldn't be concerned if you aren't noticing any other signs of illness, like runny nares, watery droppings, wheezing, lethargy etc. They will often do this after bathing, if the air is dry, or if they have something (like dust) in their nostrils....

budgies make that kind of noise while breathing and you can hear if you get closer. But did you observe any breathing difficulties? or any other unusual behaviours that bird doesn't normally do, any eating disorder etc.? If so you should take him to a vet.
