Update: everyone is still sneezing. I see lots of dust at the bottom of the seed cups, but the room is fine to breathe in now (by human standards, anyway). Two budgies are molting, and I read this can cause sneezing. Has anyone else had budgies that just chronically sneeze? It's all 3 of them, and nobody seems sick. I'm puzzled. The dusty litter is long gone.

Continuous sneezing is not normal, do you have access to an avian vet other than the ER vet? Is there anything in the room that is scented, do you still also hear coughing, is there any discharge from the nares?

Thanks for replying, Cody. No coughing, no discharge, although my spouse said one has a scraped cere... they're still rubbing their faces on the perches, but 2 of the 3 are molting.

We have a vet appointment with the technician tomorrow for all 3 birds to get their Ivomec applications and nails trimmed. My spouse is taking them, because my French isn't fluent yet (I'm American living in French-speaking Canada). I'll make sure the vet tech knows what's going on to give them a good look over and see if they need a vet appointment.

Everyone is pretty energetic tonight, but my molting budgies sleep a lot the rest of the day.

Please let us know what you (your husband) finds out at the appointment tomorrow.
I'd ask the vet tech to relay the information to the vet while your husband is there in the office.
Hopefully, the vet can take a quick look at them and give a diagnosis and treatment plan at that time.

Thanks, FaeryBee. The vet's office gave everyone a look over and noted that they all seemed energetic and healthy. The vet tech said birds in this part of Canada often sneeze due to the dry air (from all the heater usage). Its been around 32% humidity in the birds' room, sometimes down to 28%, so we're going to bring in the humidifier this week to see if things improve. The sneezing had mostly stopped during the trip and visit to the vet, the same way it stopped during our last vet visit. So, it seems like it's definitely environmental in their little room.

The budgies have been having green colored droppings (the watery urine part), so we showed them a picture. They said it's normal with a change in diet, and the fact that they're eating more pellets with food dye makes me think they're not sick, just having one of those "I ate too many blueberries" kind of colored poos.

Everybody got a nail trim and an application of Ivomec. They said the quick of the nails is long, so they need small, more frequent trims. But overall, everybudgie seems healthy. They're scheduled to see the vet tech for every Tuesday for the next 3 weeks to get their Ivomec. We'll get them weighed for the next 3 visits.

Good to know that there does not seem to be any infection going on and since you will be going once a week for the next 3, if anything comes up it can be dealt with right away.

Is the humidifier a warm mist humidifier?
Those are best for use with your budgies. I used one every winter for my birds when I lived in Virginia.

You can also put a drop or two of 100% pure Eucalyptus Essential Oil in the water in the warm mist humidifier. That will help with their breathing.

Thanks, Cody and FaeryBee! Yes, it's a warm mist humidifier, and it has a section where you can add essential oils. I would've thought the scent would be too much for budgies. I guess I'll have to check out the pharmacy for pure eucalyptus oil. I think that should still be sold under this "essential-supplies only" lockdown.

I use the 100% Pure Eucalyptus Essential Oil in both my bird rooms all the time.
Hopefully you can find it or you can order it through Amazon.
