After Stormy eats he has always yawned or whatever, to adjust his crop I think? I'm writing this in a rush. I don't know.
But just now he started doing so very violently. He bobbed his head, stuck out his tongue and spit out seeds. I don't think he's vomiting because it's whole seeds.
He shook his head and spit out a ton of seeds all over the place. What was this? What was he doing?
I thought he may have been choking but after doing this for about 30 seconds he stopped and went back to eating. Is he just throwing seeds around for the fun of it or is something wrong?
Edit: I got a video because he started doing it again.

what is this - YouTube

You can't really see the seeds coming up but you can hear them hit the bars and the floor.
Right after this he went and ate again.

Unfortunately, your Stormy has vomited. Your description fits perfectly for this, vomited seeds can very well be undigested as in whole.
How is Stormy doing now, is he fluffed up and sleepy? If he has another vomiting spell or you notice a change on his droppings, energy levels and appetite, then it would be best to have him seen by an avian vet specialist.

I hope your Stormy feels better soon!

EDIT: I have just seen your video and it further proves that Stormy was vomiting.

He did it twice, both times directly after eating. Then he went and ate again and didn't vomit this time. After eating he went and played for a few minutes, ate again and went back to playing. He hasn't vomited since.
He is kind of fluffed up, but it doesn't seem like an abnormal amount. His energy is the same and he's letting me pet him and hold him.
His droppings look normal.
I'm so worried

10 minutes after the second time vomiting and he is starting to fall asleep.
Do I take him to the vet now? I really don't want something to happen to him
Edit: I called the nearest avian vet to me and made an emergency appointment. He isn't my usual vet, but my preferred vet is a couple hours away and I just want to have him looked at ASAP. My appointment is in an hour, I'll post updates
I'm so worried about my baby

It's good that despite being a little sick, Stormy is still playful, most likely the ailment is on the very early stages.
Given the fact he had two isolated vomiting episodes, booking an appointment with the avian vet would be the best course of action, so that Stormy is properly examined, diagnosed and treated. This will also give you some peace of mind.

I'm wishing your Stormy a steady and full recovery.

EDIT: I have now seen your latest update and I hope all goes well at the vet's. I know it's difficult, but try to be calm.

It's very likely that little Stormy has a crop infection.

You've done well in getting him to an Avian Vet right away.
Crop infections are treatable with the proper antibiotics.

I'm sending lots of love and healing energy to little Stormy and will be looking forward to your update after you see the vet with him.

Thanks everyone.
We just got home from the vet and I have to say I am extremely displeased with this vet. First of all, he was extremely critical of how I am caring for Stormy, saying, quote, "there is no excuse for him not to be fully tamed at this point. Clearly you're not cut out for the amount of work a bird takes" and he went on to talk to me as if I was stupid and/or knew nothing about birds. He was adamant that Stormy is a girl because of his purplish cere. I don't trust this vets knowledge.

Then, after the physical examination of Stormy, the vet let him go! Stormy is fully flighted and he began to fly around the room (and the door to the waiting room was open!!) and Stormy flew straight into the window! I told the vet to put him back in the cage and he laughed, saying Stormy would be fine. I was mad, and I caught Stormy and put him back in the cage before he hurt himself.

The vet gave me medicine to dissolve in Stormy's water but I don't know if I want to give it to him. Based on the rest of the vet visit, I don't fully trust his prescription. Additionally, he didn't tell me what the medicine even was, but I saw the bottle said "Aconitum napellus." The packaging says Nux/Acon 200c. Does anybody know what this is? Should I give it to Stormy?



I'm going to call my regular avian vet and get their opinion on the prescription, but I can't take Stormy in today.

Although i'm not familiar with the medication you got for your bird, I feel bad you had to go through this. The vet should of handled the situation professionally! I would have lost it if he/she just let my bird go from his/her hand. I'm sure more knowledgeable members will guide you but I suggest you still take a second opinion with your original vet...
