Hey guys... Just wondering if u guys could help at all... My lorrie is a bit ill. We haven't had him long at all... and since we got him he has been lying on his cage floor, his head down... he is only a baby still, so we are feeding him a wet mix... but every time he eats, he regurgitates it all up... And we just can't afford million dollar surgery on him! PLEASE HELP!

Your bird needs to go to the vet. CAN YOU CALL THE BREEDER? It sounds like this baby has been sick or doing poorly since you got him. But he needs to go to the vet.

I have not raised birds but I know babies have to be kept warm and the formula needs to be warm enough or it sits in the crop and doesn’t move on into the bird. If it’s too warm it will burn the crop (storage sac in the baby’s neck and chest) and baby will be badly hurt.

Are you checking the temp of the formula? It must be just right. Is the baby in a warm brooder?

And can you call the person who sold you this unweaned baby and get some help?

Welcome to the forums, @MUSICourlorrie, I'm sorry that your lorikeet is unable to keep his food down. I agree with @HeatherG, your bird needs to see a vet, or if one is not available you really need to try to contact his breeder or the person who sold him to you for help ASAP. We are not vets here and unfortunately the few breeders experienced in raising babies that we have among our membership are not as active as they once were. I'm not sure where in the world you are but the link below should help you find an avian vet in your location ...


The following thread also has a lot of info you may find useful so I will link it for you, but in my opinion you are still best to seek help from the breeder or a vet as soon as you possibly can...


I hope this helps and I wish you and your little one all the very best 🙏

I am very sorry for your loss.

Please don’t bring home an unweaned baby parrot. So many things can go wrong. They are very fragile.
