Vomiting in birds - cause
by: Dr Phil Bird Vet Melbourne

Dr Phil - Melbourne bird-vet.
I classify vomiting into 2 groups
1) Normal - a hen vomits to a chick. Or between partner birds feeding each other.

2) Uncontrolled and abnormal - vomiting as in a disease state. The vomit is usually uncontrolled. Heavy metal toxicity is one of the more common causes of vomiting in our Melbourne Avian Veterinary Hospital.

See for a good summary on vomiting in Birds.

Parrot vomiting

There is no way to tell over the Internet. It could have ingested or breathed something toxic, it could have an infection, it could have a disease etc.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
