So sad to report that Misty just passed away. He bum was stuck with poo so we cleaned him with warm water and he was ok. He was wet so I've held him close to my chest and after 5 minutes he opened his wings and just died. He has eaten this morning and flying about. I don't know what's happened. I'm just sitting here holding him crying.
Thanks Sam, that helps. How could you love such a tiny thing in two days, really loved this little guy. Husband said I try too hard to make everything perfect for them
You most certainly do not! Let me clarify, what I mean is anyone would make everything perfect for their birds because they know what they are like to keep! And we always think that we still haven't tried hard enough x
I think it just puts into perspective just how fragile these birds can be x
I’m so so sorry. You did nothing but give him lots of love. I’m sure he was already ill. But i also think, he would have felt your love, as you were holding him. Something he would not have had, if still at the breeder.
We have spoken to the breeders wife as he is away at a budgie conference in Scotland, so will go and see him and talk to him on Tuesday when he returns. She was really apologetic and said these things happen. He was quite placid when we put our hand in and willingly stepped up, I thought this was lovely, I have read I could have stressed him out even more, he after a day whenever I was in the kitchen he would come to the bars. I haven't cooked around him except for an hour this morning and we have an electric cooker.
I just don't know, we just keep talking about it and going back over things.
