Oh dear I am so sad to read this Colin, you did such a lot for this lovely little bird. It must be comforting to know you held her close in her last moments. RIP dear Edward. I shall look forward to reading the reminders of her little life.

If budgieed still keeps in touch, wherever in the world you are, I am deeply sorry to have to pass on the news to you and your daughter. I know how much you both loved her. I sincerely believe it was her age that caught up with her. She was very lively and got on with the boys and tolerated the new girl Bobby. I hope you do read this and sorry once again.
Thank you everyone. Marianne Marlow, if the rest of the flock are missing Edward they have a funny way of showing it. Bobby seems the more uncertain as she is now top of the pecking order as it were. I shall leave all that for another thread as it will take one to describe how things are going.
I'm sorry, OP. Though lovely that you were there and with her when she became unwell. You always spoke very affectionately about Edward, "she finishes up on the floor" but you were always there to help her, as you were at the very end.
