I’ve noticed that my 15wk 3day old Indian ringneck has started regurgitating his food today. He did it three times today. Once was a whole nut. He’s acting himself and flying like nothing is wrong. I contacted my avian vet, who told me that if he is acting normal that I should just keep an eye on him.
Is regurgitation normal in ringneck? Thanks for reading :)

It's a normal thing to see. It means your young one's crop is filled...and they don't need any more food at that time!
It's very easy to overfeed - or feed a baby bird...it even happens in the wild, at times...

Keeping your vet informed was a smart idea! If anything changes contact your vet again.

Thanks for responding. He didn't regurgitate today. I have a feeling that since he is only regurgitating his training treats, he must be keeping them in his crop for later. But who knows, Alex Trebeak is a little character. 4F358F8A-C09E-4A98-A2B6-8A6EAEEF7B42.jpeg
