baby eclectus girl 45 days trows up


I have a baby Eclectus girl 45 days old (400grs)and often I give her food (kaytee exact hand feeding formula for Macaw & Eclectus) and she trows up all the formula and the crop turns empty. I usually give aprox. 36ml three times a day, it is in good cndition and is gaining weight. Never eats like the other species of parrots she eats too slowly is it a normal behavior?

I am a vet and in my town I am the only vet who knows about parrots. The thing is that this is my first eclectus baby.

If you are 'making' her eat faster then yes you can make her trow up all the time. Yes eclectus parrots do eat a LOT slower & this is something you will have to deal with. They are not like other parrot species when it comes to rearing & weaning so do please read up on as much info as you can find.

Take her to see an avian vet to rule out any health problems she may have. Usually at this age if they have health problems it is due to the feeding, so an avian vet is important to go & see.
