Sweet dreams to my little Peanut who passed away this morning at the vet, 4th August. He was only 9 months old. I am going to miss him so much, as are the 4 budgie friends he has left behind. I just can't get my head round him not being here anymore and can't stop crying. This is the first budgie death I have had to deal with in my flock, and he is the youngest, so just finding it extra difficult. Especially as he was not here with me at the time.
I will always remember how happy he was, bopping his head off all day, his little kisses he would give you and loved sitting with me looking out the window. That's was his favourite thing to do. He loved looking at what was going on outside. He was full of life an mischief. I would post a photo but don't know how to on my iPad. He is the one with his back turned in my profile photo.
Later today my husband and I are thinking of getting a plant for the window. We live in a flat so have no garden. We were thinking of putting our baby bird to rest in a nice plant by his favourite place. Do you think this is a good idea?
I am absolutely devastated

Oh no, i am so so sorry to hear this. You must treasure the time that you had with him. He was obviously loved very much and a lucky little bud to be part of your family. RIP little one, fly high. Hug.

So very sorry to hear of your loss. Peanut sounds like he was a lovely little fella. (I love your profile pic by the way). I have heard of others burying their little one in a plant pot, which has the added advantage of being able to take it with you if/when you relocate.
Rest in Peace, sweet adorable Peanut. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. They leave us much too soon. I was so hoping that Peanut would recover from his injury. Though his life was short, it was filled with love. Hugs to you, Lemonade.
Most of us here have been through the same heartache you are feeling right now, as skysmum said treasure the memories, you did everything you possibly could for little Peanut, and im sure he knew that too. Im not too sure if you mean laying him to rest in a plantpot indoors or a outside window pot? Personally if the plant needs repotting i dont think this would be a good idea as it will be even more upsetting all over again for you, understand that without a garden its difficult but its up to you, you do what you feel best, he was your baby. Sending you big hugs x
Thank you everyone for the kind words. I really appreciate it and being on this site is helping me through this tough time. The vet would not allow us to collect my baby yesterday as he was out on call so I went and brought him home today. We bought a lovely little box for him and put in some millet, toys, a goodbye note and his wooden stick he liked to perch on as he was afraid of hands. We bought a Lemon Tree for our window and put him to rest underneath so that he was always by the window at his favourite place. I hope you all don't think I'm mad but I feel it has helped doing all this.
It still doesn't feel right at home and feels a lot quieter, even with 4 budgies. They are all being quiet. It's killing me seeing his empty swing when I put the others to bed at night. After time I think I will look to adopt a little rescue budgie from the sspca or from a local breeder. None will ever replace my Peanut, I love him so much, but I don't want to give up on the happiness these little fellas can bring to your life.
