My cockatiel has a feather growing out of his nostril. Does this indicate illness? should I attempt to remove feather?

Thank you!

Cockateil finally rubbed his beak enough times on his cuttle bone and mineral block and removed it himself!
Thanks do much Dr.!

Remove the feather
by: Dr Phil Melburne Bird vet

Birds do not usually or ever have feathers growing from their nostrils. I suggest gently removing the feather.

Good luck Dr Phil
