i have an 10 month old meyers parrot, he seems to eat quite hardily, but almost every time i allow him to perch away from his cage, i find whole hulled seeds, and bits of partially softened food on the ground below his perch. why is he doing this? is it dangerous?

My African grey just started doing this every time I walk in the room , when we go for a walk . And its kind of grossing me out . But I still love him .

love bird
by: Anonymous

i have a lovebird that does the same thing. if he is in a really cuddly mood with me then he regugitates. but one time he got a hold of a poisones plaant and the next morning he couldnt stop regurgitating. he was fine after that, but we got rid of the plant in a hurry! another time, he regurgitated for no reason and out came a piece of rubber from his favorite toy! we got rid of that in a hurry too! he might be getting rid of excess food and if worse comes to worse, he would have a digestion problem. but your bird sounds fine. dont worry too much unless you are sure that something is wrong.

Meyers' Parrot regurgitation
by: Tracie

It sounds like he may just be "in love" with a toy or something, but it would be good to take him to an avian vet to make sure.
