by bird died without warning the other day she was 5 months old and was fine for as long as a had her but late that day I observed odd behavior such as hunching over, wings out like a chicken, and sleeping at the bottom of the cage. I listened to her heartbeat and it was fast after reporting it tp my parents they scheduled an emergency appt and but before we left she had a reaction similar to a seizure. she was relatively unresponsive from there she ad a heartbeat blinked and looked around but had no physical reaction to touch though obviously had nerve function as on the way to the ER I blew on her head feathers to keep her awake but on the way she had a second less intense reaction and died almost immediately after. do you know what may have caused this?
Hello, so sorry for your loss. This could be various reasons, genetic, organs not well developed… Also, you need to check other birds from the breeder or the pet store. Some may breed Budgies siblings. You don’t need to be sad, you did everything you could to save his life. Thank you for being a great bird parent!
