Fischer's Lovebird drinking excessive amounts of water
I have a 2 year old fischer's dilute lovebird. He has some weird behaviors, such as regurgitating for his toys, and rubbing himself against his perch. He also drinks a lot of water and does wet droppings all in one corner of his cage. This has been going on for a few months. I've had him to the vet for a check up. The vet did a gram stain which showed a slight elevation in bacteria. The culture he took the following week did not grow anything. I was asked to bring him back to repeat the tests in a month.
He acts healthy, plays, is social when out of his cage and eats well. His weight is consistently good as well. The water drinking and wet droppings have me concerned. I am beginning to think it's part of his obsessive/compulsive ritual of mounting his perch and regurgitating, which goes on all day. By the way, we have bought him a mate - to date he's not interested in her. We'll try him with her again as she matures a little more (when she's 8 or 9 mos. old)
Any help or advice you can offer will be appreciated! He's a sweet little guy & he's so special to us. We just want to help him!
