Default aphrodite is dead.

I don't understand. She was fine yesterday. She flew over and landed on me whens he was out; she chased Cadaver off my head. She stole Henry's food.
She was fine.
I haven't even had her for two weeks. I've enver had an issue with the birds I got from this Petsmart before; all my budgies have come from there.

Now I'm worried all my other birds are going to die and it'll be completely my fault. I just don't understand. she didn't seem sick at all. the only new thing is that she had some applesauce yesterday.


Her feathers were a little poopy because there's no grate in her cage, but I just took this picture yesterday. She wasn't poofy, she was active, she seemed just fine.

I'm going to bring her back to the store tomorrow and see if any other birds from that shipment or whatever have gotten sick. i might call my vet and see if they can do a necropsy and how much it'll cost.

I'm so sorry! What a terrible shock! You might find out if Petco will pay for the necropsy. Depending on the store they may do so just to know if there is anything that could have infected their birds.

I never even thought of that. I'll make sure to ask them about it. they can probably get one a lot cheaper than I'd be able to.
Thank you

The people at my Petco are very caring about the animals and the vet comes frequently. I know they are all different so it probably depends. I would hope they wanted to find out if there was an illness in their flock!

Take care of yourself and I hope it was just something random that happend to be wrong with your poor girl and not something contagious.

My condolences on your sad news. A necropsy sounds like a good idea. Hopefully it can put your mind at rest that it was not anything you did and that the rest of your flock is not at risk.

Fly free little one.

Very sad news. What a beautiful girl she was. I'm sorry for your loss.

I would definitely get the necropsy done.

Sorry to read that Aphrodite was dead suddenly. She looked healthy and beautiful in that pic you posted. Who ate the applesauce besides Aphrodite ?

RIP Aphrodite.

I'm so sorry to hear of this unexpected turn of events.
My condolences to you and the rest of the flock.
Rest in peace, beautiful Aphrodite.
