Stressed Ecelectus parrot
My 10 year old male parrot was stolen, but after 6 months of neglect has been returned. he is to say, not the same bird but has the affection he did towards me, however he is still trying to mate with me and regurgitates his food. He has fruit and nut mix during the day and fresh vegies/fruit at night, which if he doesn't like throws out of his bowl. But he is still throwing up his food and re-eating it as if mating and it has been nearly 6 months since his return.
Consequently his feather growth has been limited even though I have been spraying him with Aloe spray to stop the itching/ he scratches a lot.
I am concerned that he is not getting his nutrients and the fact that he still scratches quite a bit.
Any suggestions on what I can try.
