Hey Guys - I have an Alex and he is 3 on Saturday 18/7/15. He has just started this new thing where he will regurgitate on 2 of his perches/ toys. He will get caught up in what he is doing and will do it for what feels like forever... But when I catch him I distract him and get him away from it straight away. Is this him maturing? He doesn't seem stressed and it isnt throwing up... it is just like the ("love you") regurgitation routine that myself and my husband get on occasion. I just want to make sure my baby is OK. There is no Avian vet where I live and the last time I took him to the "Vet" to get his nails clipped (he was breaking new feathers as he was only little) They told me he had beak and feather. Thanks for any help you can give! :green2:

Sounds like your Alex fell in love with his toys..this happens to a lot of birds. My severe macaw just started doing the same thing to one of her toys..she never had toys before.

Hi. Have you considered getting him a friend? Maybe a rescue female alexandrine. In my experience they make nice pairs/social groups.
