Hi all,

I've had my lovebird Kuzco since the end of March and he's very attached to me. He's by himself from 9-5, but I play with him all evening and all weekend and this seems to work well for him. However, lately when I come home, as soon as I start talking to him, he starts trying to feed me. I know he's doing this out of love, and I appreciate the effort, but is this detrimental to his mental health in anyway? I thought I knew about regurgitation, but the internet has mixed opinions about allowing it to happen and since it's not a toy he's in love with, I can't just take it away. I try and distract him with a toy, but he goes back to preening me and trying to feed me. Is this okay?

You are Kuzco's flockmate and since he's alone a good portion of the day he wants to let you know he loves you and is taking care of you. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Peachy generally greets me every morning by trying to feed me and tells me "good-night" the same way. He frequently tries to feed me during the day and if I can't distract him I just have a tissue ready to wipe off the "meal" when he's finished. :giggle:

Haha that's so funny that he does it every morning and evening!

I feel bad that he's alone so long in the day, but he has the budgies for company, I keep everyone's cage doors open (he and the budgies get on really well), and it's only temporary. Good to know it's not anything serious. I don't want him to get overbonded and start hating on himself and plucking when I'm gone.

Kuzco has his budgie friends to keep him company so I'm sure he'll be fine. :)

I wish Peachy got along with my budgies but he doesn't want anything to do with any birds.

Peachy's definitely a "people bird" and only wants his Momma. :rolleyes:
