Default sneezing budgie? worried...

Hi there, my white and blue budgie Sky who is six years old did an odd thing tonight and I'm worried it could be something. Randomly he sneezed six or seven times in a row, his head slightly protruding out as he did. It's been cold this last week, teens and 20's at night and 30's and 40's during the day. I keep the heat on all day at about 70 degrees. Could it be that it's too cold for him? He's been a bit more sleepy lately and puffed but also active. Should I be worried? He's never sneezed in a row like that, he usually sneezes once and only every so often.

thanks

Is Sky still sneezing? It could be that he got some dust or minute food particles up his nose, and it caused a sneezing attack. In fact, my male is more prone to sneezing that way than my female. If it’s not all day everyday, most likely Sky is fine. If you see more prolonged sleeping and puffing, you’ll know a vet visit is in order. Your house temperature is fine, and has nothing to do with it. Let us know tomorrow (Thursday) how he is.

Looking for an update on little Skye's condition and hoping he's doing much better now.

thanks yall! No more sneezing today!!! He is a little puffed and tired recently, so I'll be keeping an eye on him and also possibly putting him in another room to sleep. When I wake up in the middle of the night he's mostly not asleep so I'm thinking maybe a room with less nose and darker.

I'm very glad to hear Sky is better today!

You can cover his cage at night and provide him with a nightlight to lessen the chance of night frights.
I cover my birds' cages top, three sides and 1/3 the way down the front and have a night light in the room for them.

Great to hear Sky seems healthy, and is feeling good today .

I cover my birds too. It helps them get to sleep and stay asleep. Use a night light in the room to prevent night frights if the room gets very dark.
