my conure is no longer sick he passed away today but i still need some advice.

a couple of days ago he was struggling to keep his eyes open even when eating and droopy wings and then yesterday he became lethargic, still had droopy wings, could hardly keep his eyes open, couldn’t fly or walk straight. we took him to the vet and he was kept over night and before they could do tests he passed away. they didn’t say what caused it.

this happened after he stole some cheese from my little brothers plate, his poo was yellow and actually smelled like cheese.

if anyone has any ideas what caused it would be really appreciated

RIP Gandalf and Big Bird, you are missed.
My deepest condolences for the loss of your conure.

Best method of determining cause is necropsy (autopsy) by skilled avian vet. Cheese is not an ideal food for parrots but they can tolerate small bits on occasion, unless tainted by bacteria or fungus. It is also possible the cheese was coincidental to other processes and poor digestion caused poo to smell like what he ate.
