African Grey Dandruff

Why does my African Grey have dandruff?

Smoky is 40 years old and has started having a major case of dandruff. The furniture in the room that she stayed during the winter, constantly had to be dusted. I never noticed this problem least, not to this extent.

Is there anything that I can do? Is it dangerous to my bird or does it mean that she has a major health problem?

If you can help me, I thank you in advance.

My guess is that you need a humidifier or you just don't remember it being so dusty. There will also be more dust when they are molting.

You might consider getting a Venta Air Washer. It uses water to clean the air and does a great job.
