Help For A Green Cheek Conures Projectile Vomiting

Green cheek conure

Mona S. writes

I recently had the experience of seeing my beloved Green Cheek Conure do what I would describe as projectile vomiting, which absolutely scared me to nearly to death.

 

I have owned birds for about 30 years or so and had never seen anything like this.

 

Actually, I was not even aware that birds could vomit at all, except for regurgitating to feed their young.

 

This looked like someone had turned on the faucet for a couple of seconds.

 

Fortunately, he has been perfectly fine ever since.

 

Do you have any idea as to what could cause something like this to happen?

 

Thanks for your time (and for your very information Sunday Brunch emails).

 

Best regards,

 

Mona S.

Are Mites Making Making My Macaw Miserable?

 

Hi Mitch,

Always look forward to your Sunday articles, thanks!

 

Madeleine is a (Blue & Gold Macaw) rescue from a home where she was malnourished, neglected and abused.

 

I was able to negotiate relinquishment but it’s been a year of learning for me, we bonded and I decided to adopt her instead of fostering.

How To Set-up A Handicapped Galah Parrot Cage

I have a young Galah parrot (aka rose breasted cockatoo) who is missing her toes on one foot.

 

She was three weeks old when she developed constricted toe and had the amputation, so she really has no idea that she’s handicapped.

 

Editor’s note: Animals never do.

 

She’s a little over two years old now. (1st April 2016)

Dear Mitch I wanted to ask for your advice.

 

My male cockatiel is pulling his feathers out from under his wings.

 

I brought him to one avian vet who did blood work.

 

That was a dead end.

 

The 2nd vet sent droppings to a lab and that was negative.

How do we know parrots enjoy anything?

How do we know parrots enjoy anything?

 

Another question recently asked on Quora was “what do parrots do for fun”?

 

We know parrots prefer “working” for food versus simply eating from overflowing bowls of bird food blends.

 

We know correlation does not necessarily imply causation but can we correctly infer that work & play are one and the same for a parrot?

Is this a proper budgie cage set up?

Is this a proper budgie cage set up?

First of all you do not indicate the bird’s lifestyle.

Will this be a solitary bird who spends a lot of time in the cage or will the bird be out of the cage a lot and basically used for sleeping?

What are the most difficult parrots to keep as pets for most bird owners?

First a little housekeeping.

When we talk about species of birds, it’s important to be specific.
