My Gregory died today after a sudden illness. He was having a problem standing on his perch. He went to the bottom of his cage in distress i felt helpless for him. Then he lay on his back and passed away. I held him in my arms and said goodbye to him. He was a very special bird who i rescued from outside my house nearly 3 years ago. He was weak with hunger and very thirsty when i found him. I like to think i gave him those extra years of life, had i not rescued him. Goodbye sweet Gregory

Gregory was very distressed before he died, he lost his tail feather. I will keep the tail feather as a memory of him. It only been a few hour's since he passed away, my home is so silent without his talking. He could say over forty different words. Thanks for your sympathy
summerbird I too lost a Budgie that talked, Pickle was like having a small child chattering away all day, it is so silent when they go. You gave him a very happy life by the sounds of it. Take care.

Now six days since Gregory passed, i call his name everyday still can't get use to the silence in the house. As Gregory was a rescued bird i had no idea how old he was. I just guess he was about 4 years old. He could of been a lot older and old age was most lightly the reason he died suddenly. He was never ill during the 3 years i had him so never went to the vets. Kept his cage clean and fed him a good diet of bird seed, fruit and veg. And millet as a treat. I won't be replacing Gregory as he was a very special bird and no other budgie would be the same.
