Peatie is on a distinguished road
Default Change in behavior

I need some help with my Dads Budgie. Since Mom has passed as of 6/19/2016 Peatie has gone deeper into depression it seems. He doesn't sing like he use to and he sleeps a lot plus he has been molting nearly ever month. He is 11 years old and eats well drinks his water and feeds his mirror. He hasn't played with anything else but his mirror. When I go over to greet him he fluffs and seems to shiver but he isn't cold. I just don't know if he will ever get over losing Mom. Dad takes great care of him and talks to him often, cleans his cage daily but still he won't perk up. Anyone ever had this happen? Thanks for reading and for any help.

Since your mom passed more than 3 years ago even if he was depressed at first, I would expect the effect of the loss to have passed long ago. An 11 year old budgie is a senior bird and he may naturally be less interactive and social than a younger bird. Do you have an avian vet, because of his age it may be advisable to have an exam to make sure there is nothing physical going on. What does his diet consist of, are there any other birds in the house?
