Not sure if this in the right place. But one of my babies died some time this weekend. I went away this weekend and i came home to find my Blue on the bottom of the cage. I think its because I lost power last weekend.

I have a few questions

One is what is the best way to clean the cage because i moved my other Budgie, Rio to her travel cage.

Second, what do i do comfort Rio? She is untamed but I am not planning on a getting another budgie just yet. I want to hand tame her first.

I would appreciate any advice.

Sorry to hear that about your little Blue. It's never easy when we lose one of our little friends. Give your cage a good scrub with boiled water and vinegar and allow to air-dry if you can. As for Rio, just give her plenty of love and attention and she should be fine. Best wishes.

Thank you. I feel so bad for her, she seems so sad but i am playing classical music to ensure there is noise for her.

I am so sorry for your loss of Blue. How unexpected.

Being around Rio as much as you can and making sure she isn't in silence are great things to do to help her cope. I'm glad you have some music for her to listen to.

In time, she may learn to cope with being alone. If not, it may be prudent to consider getting her a new little friend, though I completely understand that you are not planning on getting another yet.

Let us know how you and your little Rio are doing, okay?

I'm so sorry to hear about Blue, Koosh.

Give Rio a good bit of attention and make it known that she isn't completely on her own with you there.

RIP Blue. Fly high.

That is so sad about your little Blue - I am truly sorry.
It's good to play music for Rio - I also suggest budgie videos, so she can hear other budgies talking and living a happy life. If she mopes and pines for over a week or two, then you might think about getting her a companion

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of little Blue.
You've received good advice about giving Rio extra time and attention as she's sure to be mourning the loss of her little friend.

Fly high and free Blue; rest peacefully little one.

I'm so sorry to hear this, it's never easy to lose a feathered buddy so unexpectedly.
Rest in peace, little Blue.

So sorry to hear tht little Blue has gone to Rainbow Bridge - it's only a temporary parting and you willl always remember him. Rio will needs lots of love and hand taming her will be lovely and then another bird if you feel Rio needs a companion
