Fortunately, Perry & Lennie are eating & generally okay, however (a bit like me) they don't know what to do with themselves without Dalai to dictate the proceedings. When I let them out after it happened, they both rushed out & run about on top of Dalai's cage, looking for him. When they couldn't find him (I think they thought he might be over by the play gym) they went quiet & looked confused. Since then, apart from yesterday morning when Lennie vacated the cage for about 2 mins whilst I changed their bottom paper, they have not been out. What's the point? They are barely flying due to various problems so there isn't even that excuse. It's all rather subdued here.

The little ones do seem to form their own community with the various personalities that dictate the social order of things. When one bird is lost the others notice and it takes time for the new social order to develop. Somehow it is comforting that they all share in the loss.
