Lovebird eat so much

Why does my lovebird eat so much at the same time closing their eyes ? Is there a health problem in her?


Hi Kishandra,

If you think your bird is sick, you need to take her to an Avian Vet as soon as possible. A sick bird will often keep eating until the very end. I’ve known sick birds to pass away while eating. They are trying to maintain their reserves and survive. Closing the eyes sounds like she is not well, unless this is something she has always done. If you are only feeding her loose seed, she isn’t getting the nutrition she needs, and will keep eating because she doesn’t feel satisfied. But it sounds like either way, a vet visit it needed.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
