I'm very sorry for your loss of Bluey.
Fly high and soar free little Bluey; rest peacefully sweet girl.
If you decide to get another budgie in the future, please be sure to quarantine it for a minimum of 45 days.
Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.
It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.
Again, you have my sympathy for your loss of Bluey.
