My Cockatiel's nasal holes are constantly plugged up with skin, feather and dust debris. The only way I can help him is to spray him off with a spray bottle. I'm afraid he might inhale the water and drown. Is there any other way to clean out his nasal holes so he can breathe properly?
Does he have access to a bathing dish? I agree with you - it's not a good idea to spray him directly in the face with a bottle. At most we lightly mist our birds over their body and head during the hot days while they're out. Other times they have access to a shallow dish to play in - size appropriate of course.
