Parrot Sneezing- help!

Hi guys, hope this doesn't seem like a silly question, but my 7 week old lorikeet has been sneezing a fair bit lately, and when she does sneeze, a fair bit of fluid does come out... :/ I don't think this is normal... any suggestions?

What are you feeding her on? And when does she sneeze? Does she sneeze more directly after a feeding?

I would take her for a checkup just to be sure and if not already get a Psittacosis test done to rule it out.

I also think a vet check is in order here... Hope all is well.

Without sounding patronising, are you hand feeding her correctly?

I'd go to the vets and ask just in case

I would suggest a visit to a Vet to get a checkup. It certainly isn't a normal or usual behavior, especially if there is a discharge. Im thinking it will probably need a course of antibiotics like Triple C or something similar.
