Unfortunately, there is no one on the internet who can diagnose and treat your bird. He will have to be examined by an Avian Vet only to be able to find out what is wrong and how to fix it.

Do not use any over the counter meds including those found in pet stores. Do not use herbs or other home remedies. Until you know what is causing this, it cannot be treated.

Viral infections can cause this type of vomiting, and if this is a frequent occurrence, your bird could have a very dangerous infection. Diet is also a possible cause of this, and we recommend an organic pelleted diet of 85% organic pellets with only 10-15% in organic dark orange, green and yellow veggies fed a few times a week in small amounts. Harrisons is the best on the market in the US, and is found here. The extra money spent in feeding a balanced, high quality diet results in fewer avian vet bills and a happy healthy bird. It takes time to change from seeds to pellets, and below is a link to article written by avian vet on how to go about the change. Make NO changes until your bird has been examined by an Avian Vet.

Human food has no place in a bird's diet because of high fat, salt and sugar contents in most of the food we eat. Birds need to be eating a diet formulated for them because they have very simple digestive systems and cannot deal with spicy foods of any kind nor can they digest meat.

Thanks for writing, and hope your little bird is able to see avian vet soon. Most of them will make payment arrangements with you, so please at least try for your bird's sake.
