Re: Peach Face Lovebird Regurgitating

    Thank you! I had already removed the bell on Sunday. I washed
    it off again and the bird was so upset and immediately started
    regurgitating on it again. Common sense told me that it could
    not be healthy for my bird. He wasn't too happy that the bell
    dissappeared. (he has plenty of other toys) I thought it odd
    that he didn't become bonded to this bell until the day I put
    him into the bigger cage. Yesterday I bought a "companion" on a
    trial bases... I'm keeping them in separate cages until I see
    whether my bird will be territorial to the other. If mine is a
    male, I'm told it will not allow another male into his domain
    gracefully, so I am going to wait a day or two before trying to
    put them together in the same cage. Do you agree? I am open to
    any and all advise! THANKS
