    Question Why is she throwing out all of her food?!

    Recently, my sun conure Sunny has begun to toss out her rainbow fruit pellet food from the bowl whenever I fill it back up for her. She never leaves any behind either, and RIGHT when I refill the bowl she throws them all out again! After this, she'll climb down to the bottom of the cage and sift around in all the food, but I'm not sure if she's eating it or not... On top of this, Sunny seems to be acting strange, puffing up her feathers and making funny squeeky and wheezy noises with her wings spread out. I know that birds old enough to be hormonal can try and make nests of sorts and may act strange, and I know she's had one egg before and that she may again, but I'm not sure if she's having another one or if this is really because she is sick or wants attention. Please help! Is there something wrong? What's going on?

    Sunny Birdy!

    Sometimes a sick bird may do this.They try to look well(instinct) so tossing the food around looks like they are eating.With the being fluffed too I would get a vet to look at her,ASAP.

    Have you checked the expiration date on the food or smelt it to see if it's still good. Some foods have a certain smell to let you know it's still good incase the bag was ripped or left open.
