I think iam going to wait too more days, He seems kinda ok it's just every now and then he starts sneezing for about 1 to 2 minutes and I was concern about him, But he is eating well tho he loves brockly and toasted bread, and I think his cockateil food has pellets, but I will check on that Thanks Again.:)

I think I will wait too see if his cold will go way, I been keeping the house warm, and I think maybe I gave him too much spray bath but thanks for your comment.

Sneezing Cockatiel

Has anyone in your house started sneezing lately? If the bird sounds like someone in the house, then it is just imitating them.

If the bird is sneezing and not imitating someone, then you need to get the bird to an avian vet to make sure everything is OK.

On a side note, I noticed that you have a seed bar and millet in the cage. Please consider feeding your bird a healthy pellet diet like Harrison's and only put the seed treats in late in the evening. Birds that eat an all seed diet die at a much earlier age and usually of disease.

it sounds like a cold but just to be on the safe side I would take him to a avian vet as soon as possible. These can turn to pneumonia really fast. Good luck
