My female green cheek conure bobs her head Up an Down really really fast, kind of like when they regurgitate there food when they have babies but it's super fast an she doesn't have babies? Is that normal?

It is normal for birds to mimic their mother's act of regurgitating food for their babies to people they love as well as favorite toys.

If you see any undigested food in the vomit, then you have cause for concern and need to have your bird examined by an Avian Vet immediately. If the vomit is clear, then this is just regular regurgitation to show affection. If food is in it, then your bird is sick and needs to be examined quickly.

Thanks for writing,
