It's normal for them to sneeze sometimes -it may be because of her feather dust also since she's moulting. As long as there is not serious discharge or wetness and her nostrils don't look imflamed then she should be ok. Try bathing her so some of the dust is eliminated-they enjoy that with all those itchy pin feathers.

yup perfectly normal to sneeze at times just like us humans do :p like Aly said bathing her or misting her would help her out and I am sure she would appreciate it :D

My guys have little sneezing fits after they preen because sometimes they get a little dust in their nose. :) Sometimes they will also repeatedly yawn, this is a bit scary if you've not seen it before, but they're just trying to dislodge any feather dust from their throats. ;)

Yawning is so funny!

I agree. When I first got Baby it freaked me out-My budgies never seem to do that so I got scared a bit until I realized why and what they're doing.
It does look really freaky, aspecially if you have never seen it before. After about 2 times of seeing them do it, your mind finally works out what it is they are doing:D Little Bill never seems to yawn either:p

YAWNN :D:D
