    Hi all, have you ever encountered some stuff stuck in your pea's nostrils?
    Peggy has some stuff in there - like dust and tiny feathers clumped together.
    He (amazingly) let me pull some out with tweezers but I'm nervous about poking around his nostril too much.
    Any experience with this?

    Check the cleft in roof of his mouth for pus.

    Thanks for that Kathy. The roof of his mouth looks perfect - he just seems to have a bit of feathery stuff stuck in his nostril. I took off the outermost stuff but it it looks like he's got a bit of a dusty clump further in and I'm not sure about messing around in there...

    Just don't go sticking any sharp tweezers in there, lol, just try cleaning it off with a damp cloth and a q-tip maybe?
