Default Red Nostrils

Hello,

Sometimes when I look at my cockatiel's nostrils they appear red from in the inside.. and sometimes they are just pink..

Is that something I should be worried about?

I have noticed he has this change of color about 2 weeks I think.. yet he seems very active and happy.. sometimes I catch him sneezing but I think its only because there are feathers flying around the air which makes him sneeze..

It can happen when they have been flying or there might be something in the air that's irritating

my 2 are the same, after a lot of flying or a long sneezing session their nostrils go more red than pink
what you have to watch out for is green goo!

Hi,

Try cleaning the cage with water and baking soda followed by rinse with water only. Wash the perches with water. Allow it to dry. Give your cockatiel a light mist bath with water only. He/she may have red nostrils due to excessive scratching. The redness should subside.

Sometimes when they are in the light it seems like their nostrils are glowing reddish pink..... At least that's how it is with Em sometimes

When the nostrils get red from exercise, it's similar to the way our faces get red from exertion.
