Yes I have another question for you, my green-cheek conure seems to be molting all the time and he’s lost the two big red feathers in the tail and I can feel the feathers under his skin in between his back and wing feathers is this normal or is he short on calcium he will not touch a cuttlebone or any calcium bone to rub down his nails or beak so I have two perches, that are rough, he is a year and a half old, already really molted.
Thank you very much! Jane

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).

Hi! I very much enjoy your emails and all the information you provide. By the way, my green conure (Wyndle) looks just like the bird you have in the picture with you, Mitch.
Wyndle is a “mutt”, not a pedigree like my Sun Conure was. She has a HUGE personality and is full of spunk; very strong, inquisitive, eats all day (not overweight, tho) etc.
