Cockatiels are little cockatoos, and have the same attribute of their larger cousins in regard to producing dust. Their down feathers disintegrate and form a fine, white powder. A weekly spray bath helps keep dust down. If you have several cockatiels, you’ll need to dust and vacuum frequently or even run an air purifier. Because of all the dust, you will observe your cockatiel sneezing occasionally. If this is frequent or your cockatiel’s sneezes are wet, consult an avian veterinarian, as it could signal a health problem.
