Default Our Gibson passed away earlier today...

I had just posted a thread (under Breeding) about my male, Gibson. He was acting a bit different; he spent most of his time lying in the nest box with Mishka. I guess I should know by now that when I feel something isn't quite right with my birds, usually it means just that.

I went over to check on him this afternoon... Mishka came right out and over to me, which surprised me, and then I heard movement in the box and out Gibson fell. He couldn't make it to a perch, and wasn't even able to tuck his wings in. I removed him immediately; I wrapped him in a soft towel and held him, scratching his head softly... he died shortly after.

I know I'm not the first to have this happen, and I've had other budgies pass on, but this was just so sudden. I'm devasted, my daughters are sad, and his mate Mishka is still looking for him even though I know she knows what happened. I'm terrified that he had something that he passed on to her, and that she's next. And even so, she may still just die of a broken heart.

Sorry to ramble on and on, I'm trying to cope. Thanks for listening...

Gibson
May 10, 2003 to Oct 25, 2007
RIP our pretty boy

I am so sorry to hear of your sweet little Gibson's passing. I can relate to the shock and sense of emptiness one feels when losing a budgie. Please know that my thoughts are with you during this difficult time and that my fingers are crossed that your sweety Mishka does not get ill.

Take care of yourself and your daughters. May you have fond memories of Gibson that will last you a lifetime. Sweet dreams little guy.

Unhappy So sorry

..he wasn't very old either. So many of our birds die way too young.
I understand how you feel, I just lost a budgie a week ago. Her partner is making the favourite perch available every night - just in case. I am also concerned about the survivor's broken heart. I did get another stray form the humane society.
But of course, we have to keep the quarantine. It is really tough

Do you have pictures and videos? I find that helps...
I feel your pain.....

I'm so sorry about Gibson. Birds are fragile little things, even though they like to be tough cookies!
Gibson is lucky he had such a nice person like you to look after him and give him lots of love. Mishka is also lucky that she has you to look after her when she is upset.
I feel your pain also, in time it will pass.

I'm so sorry about your loss of Gibson. I just lost a Budgie that I only had a few short days and she died in my hands, also. Isn't it a terrible feeling when you know there is nothing you can do? My Budgie's death was also very sudden and unexpected.

Hang in there and I hope the days ahead are better for you. Hopefully your other Budgies will be okay. Please keep us posted.

RIP sweet little Gibson.

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your loss of that perky boy, may your eggs hatch healthily and bring you his son who will be just as great as he is.

I am so very sorry for your loss. No matter how many animals I have lost over the years, the pain doesn't ease.

Thinking of you.

RIP dear Gibson, fly free.
