Re: Hi i'm new member

Hello and welcome, oussama. Thank you for helping the homeless lovebird.

I’m not familiar with lovebirds specifically but after watching the video, I think your lovebird is vomiting rather than regurgitating. When a parrot regurgitates the up and down head bobbing or pumping brings up food, in the wild this is to feed young or a mate, in our homes it’s usually a sign of affection. When a parrot vomits they often shake their heads from side to side to empty their beaks of vomit. Another clear sign of vomiting versus regurgitating is bringing up undigested seed or food.

You mentioned your lovebird is laying eggs, that can be very stressful for a tiny body. Do you have a cage for your bird? She needs to be in a warm, safe place with a fresh supply of food and water so you can keep an eye on her and so she doesn’t eat or chew anything dangerous. What do you feed her? She needs a healthy diet all the time but especially while she’s laying eggs. Kale, carrots, broccoli, green beans, corn, beets and squash are all good choices and there’s many more. She also needs a good pellet on a daily basis. Do you have an avian vet in your area? It would be ideal if you could take your lovebird in for a health check. I hope she gets better soon. Please keep us updated.

Hello & welcome!
I agree with Allee, I think that a vet visit is your best option to find out exactly what's going on with her. I would also remove her from under that blanket as dark places encourage egg laying.
Please let us know how she is doing!
