    Hi Everyone,

    My lovebird is two and a half years old,for the past 7 t0
    8 months he has been acting very weird. He rubs himself
    against his toys, perches or anything you put into his
    cage, also if I'm holding him he tries to rub himself in
    my hands. I know what the rubbing is. But I'm concerned
    because he is doing this 24/7, he doesn't stop, it goes on
    even after I cover him for the night. Another part of his
    behavior is that he is eating and rejurgitating his food
    and feeding his toys and perches 24/7 he alternates his
    rubbing and rejurgitating. He eats well and I make sure
    he has plenty of fresh food, pellets and seeds I also give
    him vitamins and calcium but because he throws up
    everything he eats I think he's bulimic. His weight is
    steady at 53 grams, he was 56- 60 grams when he was a
    Can you please tell me what's wrong with him and how can I
    help him. I have taken him to two Avian vets, one said he
    was just horny, and the other told me to get him a mate.
    I'm at my wits end. I'm worried that he would die from
    all this throwing up. I take him outside the cage for play
    and he gets upset and starts a riot until I put him back
    inside. This baby was hatched here and handfed by me.
    He's my pet and I don't want to loose him.
    Please help me. Thank you.
    I really appreciate your help.
