I bought a budgie at Pet Smart about a year ago. It's all around health has been questionable, it's smaller than the others, very picky eater, not very social. Now for the past month or so she has been sneezing almost all the time, like for 30 minutes to an hour at a time. Then she will stop for a short period of time then start back in. There is no discharge around her nostrils that I can see. When she is sneezing she sounds congested also. I don't have any experience with birds, so this is all new to me. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes. Take her to an avian (bird) vet immediately.

Yes, immediately. Respiratory infections in birds are deadly.
