Default Cursed with budgie death

Hi I am a new member and just yesterday my favorite budgie died all of a sudden. My first one died because he started bleeding. First it was just a pin of blood so I put septic powder on that back of his tail and believed thats where it was coming from. Then I put him back in an isoled cage. His feathers weren't growing at all and basically if you touched him his feathers would fall, so I assumed he was molting. Anyhow when I came to check on him there was lots of blood on the floor cage and I tried my best to stop it or put pressure on it but it was too late and he passed away. It was so sad like losing a member of my family. My other bird chirpie just passed away yesterday without any signs. He was sleeping alot and I thought he was tired and all. His poop was normal and for some reason the day I got him he just always liked to sit in his food and I would take him out and tell him not to sit their. Yesterday he was eating like crazy in the morning but then as the day went on he was eating less and less. He was very bonded to me and would sit kn my stomach and sleep on it and would sit on my shoulder. My question is why did he pass away all of sudden. I am a relatively new budgie owner and the death of him hurt me alot as I only got him two weeks ago. What am I doing wrong? Also for all the members I clean their cage daily and change the littered stuff daily. When I bought them their cage was so dirty and I was wondered how they survived but they did. I used vinegar and lemon diluted in water to clean their cage every week. Please help me. I don't want anymore budgie deaths. Could it be that I am handling them too much. I don't believe a birds should be in a cage and I leave them outside the cage most of the day. Their wings are clipped so they don't fly to a window and hurt themselves but they are still able to maintain flight. Can handling a bird too much kill them. This means they are most of the time on my shoulder when I have time or I am playing a bit with them. Any help would be appreciated

Hi Gary,
Welcome to the forums, so sorry about the loss of your birds. Most birds do not like to be held, if the birds are, of their own free will, choosing to interact with you then that is fine but you should never force a bird to interact with you by holding them, but it sounds like your birds were choosing to be with you. Were the two birds that you are speaking of housed together and could there have been a fight between them that may have caused injuries that lead to the bleeding? Was Chirpie a very young bird, sometimes a very young bird will sit in the food dish because it feels like the nest to them, are you certain that he was actually eating as opposed to just pecking at the food? Since you say that you had him for only 2 weeks it could be that he was ill when you first got him and was not yet showing signs of illness. Without having a necropsy done by a vet you cannot be certain of the cause of death. It is not advisable to leave birds out of the cage when there is no supervision, if you have an good size cage and provide toys in the cage and give them daily out of the cage time when you are home they will be just fine. Make sure to look at the "Budgie Articles" section of the forum, there is great information there on many aspects of budgie care.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

I'm sorry for the loss of your budgies.
Cody has asked you some very important questions.

If you choose to get another budgie, I would recommend you try to find a reputable breeder or rescue a budgie from a local animal shelter or bird rescue organization rather than buying from a pet store.

https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles...pet-store.html

If you bring another budgie into your home, it should not be handled for the first two weeks as it needs time to acclimate to its new environment. It is best that a budgie's wings not be clipped. Taming and Bonding with a budgie takes time and patience and the bird needs to have the freedom to choose to be with you rather than being submissive because it has no choice.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi Gary

I’m so sorry to hear of your losses. You’ve been given good advice in the posts above. Although it’s not good to handle the birds right away, that isn’t what has lead to their passing.

A necropsy would have the best chance of giving you a definitive answer, but if the body was not stored in the fridge right away, the tissue would be too degraded for analysis.

Do you have any other birds at this time?
