Default Rest in Peace: Bubbles..

It is to my great sadness that I have lost my little Bubbles. It breaks my heart to lose not only one, but two in one week. Lemon two days ago, Bubbles this morning. (Featured in my Avatar)

He was puffed up last night, as mentioned in my Lemon post, but he was acting a little different. He was eating quite a bit when I gave him new seed. This morning, I was too afraid to look, so I had my boyfriend look at him later. I guess he was doing okay for a little bit, then when he returned, he was breathing hard and passed away in his hands. He came into work to tell me.

He was my favorite, and had a mate he was very close to him since they were introduced. Last night she was grooming him and he was just sitting there taking it. She doesn't look like herself my boyfriend said, just something you can tell he says. I'm afraid of her passing away from a broken heart to be honest, they were very, very close. They couldn't be seperated without them churping to each other.

I'm very upset from the loss of two, and now it's apparent that something is killing them and I don't know what it is. It isn't viral since they have no contact with other things, the only thing I can think about is their new batch of food, the water in the pipes, the cold in the room, or something in the room thats doing this to them. My investigation is starting tonight, when I get back. I have contacted a vet, who also said it sounds like something in their water, or they caught a chill since they're sensitive to the cold tempertures. I was unable to get my birds in until next week, but by then it may be too late.. I have contacted four avian vets all with similar stories since it's the holidays. They were betwen 1.5 years and 3 years old each.

Good-bye Bubbles.. I love you and you left behind a very loving mate. Now you can be with Lemon together. 11/29/2013



And This is Lemon, who passed on two days ago. 11/27/2013

Oh Alxys, that is terrible for you . The sadness you are feeling is eventually going to pass. Both of them going like this does point to a reason I do hope you find some answers please don't blame yourself like you said when you get home go through everything you can think of one by one we are all feeling your heartache hugs to you I do hope Bubbles mate is ok give her lots of attention and I hope all is better soon for you hugs to you tears are reminders of the good times you had smiles will come back and memories are yours for ever.

Alyx,

I can't even imagine how you must be feeling right now, Sweetie. I'm so sorry you've lost little Bubbles - especially so soon after little Lemon.

Do any of the avian vets in your area have "emergency" time set aside in their practice for incidents like this when more than one bird in a household has passed from unknown causes? It seems that one of the vets should be able to squeeze you in so that you don't have to wait until next week.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Alyx and I'm here if you need to talk.

Fly high and free darling Bubbles; rest peacefully now sweet boy.

How awful for all of you, I'm so sorry. They're together now, flying high and free. I really hope you're able to figure out what's happening. Budgies are such fragile little creatures, it's not fair sometimes.

It's heartwrenching. I am so sorry for your losses, so close together as well. I know how I'd feel, so my sincere sympathies

I set up a heating pad on the top of their cage and put a blanket on their cage. I'm hoping this will go well. Everybody seems to be okay for now, my green hen has some stuff on her cere that I tried knocking off. We will see what happens from here. Fingers crossed for now. I feel terrible because it's my fault. and it breaks my heart every time I snap the light on or make a noise I don't hear Bubbles "peep, peep, ...... Peeeeeep?"

I want this while ordeal sorted out before we get our new edition. We were going to get a lovebird, but I'm definitely waiting until this is all sorted out..

Oh god, I'm so sorry you lost your precious Bubbles too... I hope your investigations/vet visit go well and you are able to take measures in protecting your remaining budgies.
You have my deepest sympathies.

Rest in peace, sweet Bubbles. You were much loved and will be missed.

I can hear my hens bickering from under their blanket, which would be my little Angel (recessive pied double factor) and the albino male (the remaining male) getting into her personal space. Its too early to wake them up (they have a schedule in the winter to prevent breeding). So I'm feeling better than last night, but I won't count my chickens just yet..
