Baby regurgitating

So I thought I noticed this already. Mojo is regurgitating when I have him out with me. I haven't noticed when he is in his cage, but that doesn't mean it is or isn't happening. He is settling in well, and I think (obviously) bonding well. My concern is could he possibly already be old enough to be over bonded or has anyone even heard of a 2.5 month old conure regurgitating? I didn't believe it until I saw him chomp a piece of food earlier.

l believe he's trying to mate with you. Most birds will do this when they want to feed the one they bond with. Ask a bird n
vet to be sure.

I'm pretty certain it's regurgitating. I've raised birds most of my life and seen both. He's not shaking his head when he does it, he's stretching out his neck and bringing it up like my budgies do for each other. Also, he's not actually expelling anything, just bringing a little piece of pellet up.
I just wonder if he IS regurgitating why he would be. I don't think he could bond to me in the two weeks he's been home. He's been quarantined and is very active. I'll still keep a close eye on him in any case.

Well I've seen babies feed other babies, so I don't think there's an age limit on them regurgitating for anything He's probably just loving on you then

Thanks! The age thing was the main thing throwing it off for me. He is my little buddy already!

I think it if he was quarantined he choose you as his partner and wanted to feed you.
I saw an African Grey on German TV who wanted to feed his bird mom because he didn't have an CAG wife.
