Default My budgie Ada

Well, I have Ada, a female budgie, she is like 8 months old. I got her when she was 4 months old. Today i noticed she has this habit of sneezing after she cleans herself. Another thing i am worried about is that she doesn't know how to fly, she is trying to bite my finger but i got used to it so she is like playing with me because she is stepping up on my finger. I am worried about sneezing and not flying thing... Some advices ?

Sometimes budgies sneeze as a result of preening, especially when they are also moulting at the time. The extra dust caused by the moult can make a budgie sneeze during a preen. They can also sneeze after having some water to drink or even after bathing.
If you see her sneezing often and her sneezes are wet and you notice a decline on her energy levels and appetite, then it would be best to have her checked by an avian vet.
If you don't notice laboured breathing nor prominent tail bob and she is acting normal, then your Ada is just fine.

Does Ada have all of her flight feathers on her wings? If she has clipped wings that can explain her reluctancy to fly.

These pictures are very helpful and I can tell you that Ada won't be able to fly.
If her wing feathers have always been like that and she is not able to also keep her long tail feathers (which are also missing), chances are very high she has French moult. This is sadly a chronic condition with no definite cure. Your Ada will need to be on a special diet to cater to her needs, she will need extra protein to make up for the constant loss and regrowth of feathers.
You can work on a diet plan with your avian vet in order to improve your Ada's feather condition.
Best of luck with everything!

Have Ada's feathers looked like this since you got her? From the pictures her cage looks very small and quite barren, perhaps she would benefit from a larger cage and some toys to keep her from getting bored. Does she get daily out of the cage time with you?
