Yes Hezz, it's strange how animals seem to know when their time is up. I have already cleaned most of their cage, I just needed something to do and I wanted to do it sooner rather than later. My home feels so empty and quiet at the moment so I probably will get another pair.
No one else will replace these two boys, but they have fixed a love for budgie-everything in your heart. Another pair will certainly benefit from being part of your home.
We are not Vets, Avian or otherwise. If you have any serious doubts about your budgies' health an appointment with an Avian vet should always be your first point of call.
When I lost my beloved Hen bird Mont, the place was not the same, quiet, dull and I didn't talk much as I didn't realise how much I talked to her throughout the day.
But I knew that getting more budgies was a testament to what a good job she did - she made me fall in love with the feathered kind and although I was not replacing her I was just continuing her legacy as I am sure you will stevex
I hope you can take comfort in that - RIP Joey but your love will always live on through others x
Not forgetting Monty ✶ Pippin ✶ Alfie ✶ Barney ✶ Sir Wiggy ✶ Kipling ✶ Marley
