My parakeet Oliver died tonight

 He  was fine this morning. Tonight he could not stand or walk.  I have noticed he had issues  with his  corrdination ( like losing his balance) but thought nothing of it. 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

I'm so sorry about Oliver.  We had a lot of parakeets when we were young - they were silly birds - always made us laugh some of their antics.

So sorry for the loss of your dear Oliver.  Such a sweet bird.  I know it isn't easy when one of our pets go to Rainbow Bridge.  Hugs.

@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.

@kcladyz  Oh no, please accept my condolences.

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

Re: My parakeet Oliver died tonight

Sincere condolences. I hope memories of Oliver are a comfort to you in coming days. 

My family had parakeets as pets for me and my siblings when we were young. They were fun and pretty and we were warned they were fragile. So I know how much you loved Oliver and feel sad. Take support from all of us who have seen our pets go over the bridge.
