    Urgent What’s wrong with my lovebird

    Hi, I took my lovebird to the vet yesterday to check on her frequent regurgitation, they did a fecal gram stain and it was clean. They did blood work but I have yet to receive the results, I asked for a crop swab but the vet didn’t want to resort to that just yet out of fear of the risks. Last...

    Bird digging?

    My baby Romeo is around 2 and whenever I take him out of his cage he buries his beak in my hand and digs away like a cat/dog. He also regurgitates sometimes? Has any one else had this happen? Thanks a bunch :cag:

    GCC Regurgitating for a Budgie: Normal or not?

    Hello everyone! Something strange happened today and I was wondering if it’s normal that my green cheek conure Korben was regurgitating for his budgie neighbor. I know that birds regurgitating for one another is a normal thing and a sign of bondedness but is it normal (and a good thing too)...

    Throwing up at nothing?

    My 9-month-old parrotlet, Porkchop, has been with me for 4 months. He sometimes stands on top of his cage, throws up at absolutely nothing, then briefly becomes aggressive and lunges at me if I go near him. I'm not certain if he is vomiting or regurgitating. He's not looking at a toy or at me...

    Lovebird - frequent regurgitation

    Hello, I'm concerned about my male lovebird, Harry (will be 1 year in March) as he's been regurgitating very very frequently lately. It started about a month ago and I wasn't concerned at first because he started doing it as he "humped" his cuddle hut so I assumed it was just...
