Regurgitating More and More - Alexandrine Parrot
(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
Hi, my 5 year-old Alexandrine Parrot has started to regurgitate many times a day on his perches. Sometimes he does it on my brother's hand (he loves my brother for some reason). I brink my parrot in the bathroom with me when I take my shower. I put him on the towel rack and he loves it there. He makes noises and talks a bit, however after approximately 5 minutes, he starts to regurgitate on the towel rack, in the corner. He regurgitates also on his favorite toy.
What is going on? Before, he used to do this a couple times a day but now, he does it approxiamtely 10-15 times a day. His head bobs from one side to the other and he makes a little sound, he regurgitates and eats it, then regurgitates and eats it again. What is too much regurgutation? He regurgitates maybe 1/4 cup a day (in total) but that is gross!
Should I get another parrot for him? Would that solve the problem? I haven't seen much info online. I bet you I have the parrot that regirgitates the most. I clean his cage every day, he is healthy, has never had a problem, he loves my mother, my boyfriend and I very much. He is a very happy bird. Please tell me that other parrots do this often!
