11 Week old Parrot vomiting

It sounds like your bird is very sick. The vomiting is NOT normal, and your bird needs to be examined by an Avian Vet only.

If you are handfeeding this bird, it may be that you are either not doing it correctly or you are feeding the wrong foods. Baby parrots have to be eating a high quality baby parrot handfeeding formula. Formula has to be fed with a syringe to prevent air from accumulating in crop, and it has to be warm enough so bird can digest it.

Find an Avian Vet and get your bird in there quickly because it will not last much longer with whatever is going on here. You also did not mention what type of bird this is. The larger birds have to be handfed a minimum of 3 months and then the weaning process can be started. Weaning is a process and does not happen quickly. You have to step down on the feeding as bird begins to eat more regular food which should be organic pellets as the base diet.

Let us know what the avian vet has to say and good luck in keeping this one alive.
