thank you on the regurgitating birds
by: Anonymous

thank you editor I had no idea except that is exactly what it looked like.Thanks so much maybe someone else out there needs to know this we have so much to learn about birds they are very mysterious, who would think the two brothers would do this as almost a family tradition..How funny. They are two years apart coming from the same parents and I just got the little brother two months ago so I never saw the original one do this,but, then he did and then so did the little brother the next day,

Bird regurgitating

Antony, parrots do this as a way to show affection to someone they dearly love. When your bird was a baby, his Mother fed him using crop milk which was predigested food in liquid form, and is what baby birds of all kinds are fed when they are too young to leave the nest.

Older birds use this as a way to show their human friends how much they love them. It is like they are trying to feed their own precious one which, in this case, is YOU.

So long as no food is coming up when your bird does this all is well. If you see undigessted food coming up, then your bird is sick and needs to be examined by an Avian Vet. If you did not have him checked out at the beginning do so now and at least once a year to make sure he stays healthy.

Thank You for being the kind of person a bird can freely love and trust, and write back with any other questions as we are always here. You must be a very special person for your bird to love you as he does, and that makes you very special in MY book too!

Linda
