Green cheek throwing up

My green cheek is throwing up in his happy hut and then pulling fibers off the hut and mixing it with the throw up and creating what's looks like a hair ball.. Why?

Bird throwing up in tent
by: Tracie

I have no idea. Pulling the fibers can be either entertainment or nest building. Birds often regurgitate on things they love, so it may really like it's tent.

Personally, I would remove the tent for two reasons. It is unsanitary for it to have wet material in there that can mold and if it pulls strings from the tent it could get the strings wrapped around it's leg or body and get caught. Birds have been know to choke and chew their legs or feet off when trapped in something like this.
