Aww thank you so much again everyone - all of your words have brought much comfort at this time I really like the idea of writing things down Hezz - they all have little quirks that are unique to them don't they? I will write my Bertie list tonight Sorry I haven't had time to reply to everyone individually, I've just logged on quickly before work and wanted to make sure I said thanks - it means a lot that you've all taken time out to reply xxxx
Be prepared to cry, though, if you make a list. It just happens; you won't be able to help yourself. I still do sometimes when I read through Blue's, but there are smiles as well as you remember the funny things.
We are not Vets, Avian or otherwise. If you have any serious doubts about your budgies' health an appointment with an Avian vet should always be your first point of call.
I am sorry for your loss. Rest in peace little one.
My Birds My Foods & Supplements Always treat your pets as family members. We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures (Quran 21:107) There is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing (Quran 6:38)
So sorry to read that little Bertie has passed away. Anyone who says it's just a bird is missing out on a gift. I love mine with all my heart, every little feather. They are part of the family. Sending lots of love xx
