Hi, I have a neighbor that recently got a Macaw from a friend. This bird gobbles down his food in a hurry and then vomits it on the bottom of the cage. She says she has to feed him several times a day because of this. I have seen the bird and he looks healthy. Apparently the bird has done this with his previous owner also for several years? I am a parrot owner myself and I am concerned about this. I have seen the vomit and it is like un-digested food, but heaps of it and it seems he does it in the same spot on the bottom of the cage. Any ideas?
I guess since he (or she) has done this for a long time it is not an immediate concern but if my Amazon would do this, I would take him to the vet. Please could you explain? I will then let her know what you said as she does not have a computer. Thank you! Maxie
