Didn't see this coming but Sunny and Griffen are dead.

My mom found them dead after she came home from dropping me off at school. She usually feeds them in the mornings since I'm too busy to.

I'm assuming the fungal infection killed them. They were starting to look better and I really thought they were. But I guess I was wrong.

I'm not sure how to feel. The emotions will probably hit me in a few days. This week has been hell, with both school and life, and this just made it worse honestly.

Oh no, @BirdyBee, I'm so sorry to hear this awful news! Please accept my deepest and most heartfelt condolences, I know how much your feather babies mean to you. Their cherished memories will be etched on your heart forever though, and nothing will ever erase those. Sending you hugs and comfort, @BirdyBee, I'm so sorry for your loss 💔💔

Oh my gosh.

Ané… I am so sorry. This is so tragic and I can’t even imagine the pain of losing two beloved birds in such a short timespan. Take care of yourself and remember there was nothing that could be done. You gave them a perfect life and that’s what matters.

HUGE hugs. Fly high sweet birdies. 🫂

Oh Honey, I'm so, so sorry for your loss. It's hard enough losing one, and losing two at once would be devastating. They had such a wonderful and happy life with you, and you did all you could for them.
May their memories be a blessing🙏

Aww two of them at once, that's harsh, my condolences

“All of us feel such deep sadness when our Parrot friends die, and because they are Animals and not Humans, we are at a loss for words. Often, it is only other Parrot owners who can understand the depth of the loss that we feel with this complex, loyal, and loving creature. Resulting from such a loss, I have placed feelings and emotions into words and found verse to console the loss of my Cleo and since her, other sweet Amazons, in turn; I hope it will speak for all of you.” - Steven (SailBoat)
You left this world so quickly. I can hardly comprehend your leaving. Yet there, in my hands, your still body rested — no longer your home. So much I have learned, so much you have taught, your purpose a full measure beyond your size. Comprehensions of your loss still a mist but yet, I know you are whole and happy - now beyond Rainbow Bridge. And so busy you must be upon your green wings, guiding angles to those of us yet to cross. Within my ear, I still hear you, those special sweet sounds of comfort and contentment:

“Do not stand by my grave and weep my friend.
I am not here. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the gentle summer rain.
When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry my friend.
I am not there. I did not die.”

My pray for you my beloved feathered friend:

“May your body nourish this earth.
May your soul find release and contentment.
May you fly high and free upon wings of spirit.
Rest in peace little green one.”

The love and tender warmth of you is a un-full-fill-able void.
I do so much thank-you for creating a space for another, a special place next to yours’.

Just buried the two... can't believe they're gone. It happened so quick 😕
After a little while I get the feeling of gratitude and pleasure in having had such a special relationship with a parrot. I hope these feelings come your way too
