Hello. One of my 8 budgies, albino female budgie Cicinka died today evening.... I probably brought her almost 3 years ago with chronic chlamydia and maybe also megabacteria. Megabacteria was treated by amfotericin B, but was also found later, yesterday... PRobably since yesterday she had stucked egg. She was not hormonally good, the egg today had to be broken in the oviduct.... She had probably the rupture of the oviduct, the shape on the belly was really large.... She was very exhausted from the unability to lay the egg today and died in the evening. I am very sorry for that. I am going to an autopsy and then histology examination tomorrow into Czech to my vet. doctor.
Cicinka, I wish you a good another life. Thank you and I know you are staying with us together, with your daughter Erwinka, son Norbert, grandson Gurgo, granddaughter Gulliverka.... gradndaughter Attertka who flew away in June from the balcony....
I am sending you never ending kisses. I love you forever.

Oh no Ivan, I'm so sorry to hear the terrible news of Cicinka's passing. I'm so very sorry for your loss of your precious girl, but how lovely that she leaves the legacy of her babies and grand-babies with you. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss, Ivan.

Godspeed to the Rainbow Bridge, sweet Cicinka, until we all meet again 🙏

thank you, dear. I believe she can have a good another life, like once told me on email famous australian avian doctor Ross Perry, who died one month ago.... that egg exhausted her, but I will go to autopsy and histology examination anyway tomorrow.

Yes I was very sad to hear of Dr Perry's passing too. He certainly was a legend in his field, particularly with his groundbreaking work on PBFD in the 1980's. He will be very sorely missed.

Yes, thank you. I was in email contact with him.... I am starting to think what I did wrong. I do not regret I took this budgie from the store, despite she probably had chronic chlamydia and also megabacteria. But I could not prevent it to stop her from constang laying eggs... I would have to separate her from the others, and it would be a torture, so....

my beloved budgie Cicinka had ( by autopsy ) really infammation of the oviduct due to constant eggs laying and hormonal changes, some changes on proventriculi probably due to megabacteria, no visible changes on other main organs..... So the question should be how to help such birdies with those hormonal problems... If possible.

thank you, friend. I believe she is going to have a good another life.
I just had to find out what are the preventions against chronic laying eggs which can exhaust budgies and take out the calcium from them.

Thank you, Galeria. I believe she will be loved in another life again. Like my friend from Australia DR. Ross Perry who died recently... once told me : opened the door to let your budgie come back like a healthy chick.

The histology confirmed that she died mainly due to exhaustion of constant egg laying, past fighting with infections, despite the chlamydia was not there now found....
If I would had been giving her calcium and D3 Vitamine, I would damage the kidneys, so I do not know what I could do more... exposing to sun, etc...?
