Oh no!!! I'm so sorry to hear about Boo. I love reading the updates, but this is one I hated to see. Heartfelt condolences my friend.

Fly free little one.

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

I'm so sad to hear of Boo passing.. oh gosh I know how much this hurts. A prayer for you and the rest of your flock....

Is this disease the psittacosis , can they go ahead and treat all birds in the home ??

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

I would really like to thank everyone for there well-wishes over our loss of Boo. Our Vet friend did confirm it was a respiratory infection possibly caused by dander, viral, bacteria, fungus, or something else. We now have TWO Pure enrichment air purifiers in the bird room plus we change the heating & air conditioning filters once every two months when 3 is what the filters call for! I flat out ask our vet if we simply had TOO many birds for the area and he said know. He use to raise and sell HUNDREDS at a time. The sad truth of the matter is: if one is going to have large numbers of birds, your eventually GOING to lose some either by what we just went thru, unforeseen injury or problems at birth. I know he meant well but when you get attached to each and every flock member.....it's still tuff to deal with a loss.

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

JUST AN UPDATE: We are SLOWLY getting over the sudden loss of Boo. I'm reminded every morning when I back out of the car port and see the little fenced off area where Dacey and Boo are buried. It's sad yes, but life goes on plus I have 12 other tiels to look after and cherish PLUS the two suns. After the holidays, we are seriously thinking about letting Kiwi and Woody breed again. At some point next year I can't wait to see if Buzz (a whiteface male) and Auzzie ( a whiteface cinnamon pearl female ) will give us a clutch!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

A HALLOWEEN UPDATE:

I guess the big news is Peanut has finally found his voice and is catching up fast to Tiki. They both now wolf whistle, sing a short song the other birds know and do A LOT of chattering in cockatiel language! Tiki looks odd waddling across the floor with NO tail feathers!!! The same thing happened to Buzz several months ago but they will all grow back. We had a little scare the very day AFTER losing Boo. We noticed a fairly big spot of blood on the cage floor for Tiki. Sure enough, he had a broken blood feather. No really big deal as we've dealt with these before.....just get the Styptic powder. HOWEVER....this time we couldn't get the bleeding to stop! It finally took four applications of that powder to stop the blood flow. We watched him VERY close for two days as he had lost a good size amount of blood for a bird. Thankfully all is well now as of this post.

P.S Honey was the female we sold to a good friend.

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

MORE HALLOWEEN CAPERS. We decided to just let them all hang out today! TONS of chirping whistling and cockatiel chatter! Even RIO ( one of "The Boys") got in on the action. For some reason, he goes straight to the cage we keep 4 tiels in. He seems to love playing with there toys and of coarse eating there food! Sorry for the crappy photos. Perhaps it's time for a new I-phone!
