@kcladyz I can't watch the video.  I'm sitting here now with tears.  The love you have for him comes through from your words here.

 

I'm so sorry your heart hurts.  When I was a kid my Aunt and Uncle never had children but they had several parakeets.  They were their baby's.  I'd go over to there house and spend the night.  It was so much fun being there with them.  

 

They taught the birds to eat from the corner of their mouths and talk, it was fun.

 

I'm so sorry.  Take care and know I am thinking of you.

 

my other keet Loki sings and eats at the same time. Quite hysterical

I thought he had heat stroke but the other birds had no problems.  He fell off his perch and could not get back up. The other birds started to attack him. I made the decision to put him down myself. He would have died from the attacks  before i could get him to a vet I did not want to see him suffer.

 

Here is a video in his memory. He was such a sweet sweet animal.

 

He is the one in green. He is now over the rainbow bridge

Did the other birds peck at him?  

May he RiP.  

Did you give him a memorial service and bury him In your garden?


Yes they did. I had to just throw him away since I live in an apartment in the city Smiley Sad

I'm sorry about the loss of your little friend. My MIL had a parakeet for quite awhile. Little dear hearts come in all shapes and sizes.

@kcladyz  So sorry you lost Oliver 😢.  I have lost several parakeets over the years....it is never easy to see them not feeling well.
