Very Bad news & very good news!

Hi,
As you all might remember, i bought a red rumped parakeet. Very sadly, phoenix, my red rumped male parakeet, died last night, we are not sure how, but the pet shop we bought him from said he was fine. We are not sure how he died, he was fully tame & loved us & we loved him, he left us last night. This morning, I went to my friends house & told him. He told me that his brother is selling a baby Indian ringneck, I am buying this male indian ringneck, next thursday. He is only young, around 2-3 months old. I am looking forward to getting him as i am feeling lonely, now that phoenix left us. R.I.P phoenix, we will love you always.

Re: Very Bad news & very good news!

Sorry for your loss, may Phoenix be at rest in Rainbow Bridge.
You have memories that will alway be treasured, never to forgotten.
How long were you Phoenix's guardian for, and how old was he?
Please approach the pet shop, and inform them of your loss. There could be sick birds in the pet shop.
Before getting another bird, make sure you clean and sterilize the cage thoroughly.
Good luck with the new bird.

Re: Very Bad news & very good news!

I was just thinking the same thing Antionette. Bird could have a virus that hangs around. You should clean with a very good germacide that is parrot safe like Aviclean or GSE.

Re: Very Bad news & very good news!

So Sorry to hear of your loss. I agree with the above posts to thoroughly clean the cage and all the interals, replacing the perches would be good especially since you don't know why your poor little keet died. If you can, putting the cage out in the sun after cleaning would be good.

Looking forward to seeing photos and hearing stories of your new baby soon

Re: Very Bad news & very good news!

I'm so sorry! Regardless of how long they're part of your family, you still love them and miss them when they're gone.

That happened to us with our first Alexandrine. We had Dot for 5 days, and our friends had her clutch-mate for less then a month. Both died the same way.

Re: Very Bad news & very good news!

I am so sorry to hear about your lose of such a young Parrot!

My one thought is! Do you have any pooh? You maybe able to get a gram stain done.
I am not sure how long the sample would be good for that is all.
But it may give you a clue to what was wrong.
