whenever i happened to pass by from this part of the forum,i wondered is that really true? people have so strong feeling towards their budgies,how? i thought,we can always buy a new one if one dies.but today i have realised.
Pea,the first budgie born to my budgies,the sweetest bird in the world was born on 25 feb 08 and has been my favourite since then.handling him,holding him,trying to feed him,finger train him had always been fun.and how quickly he grew-up.
he was so friendly,my cousin would hold him and he wont bite,he never pood on me,it was always sweet when he hid behind my monitor or jumped into my cds.
2 days ago,in the same cage he was,was one other pair who had babies too and one of them had come out and became friends with Pea and none of her other children came out but 2 days ago all of a sudden 2 of them came out and viciously attacked Pea.
i woke up and saw him,bleeding.feathers with blood,hairless neck.
i was very hurt to see my budgie like that,my favourite budgie,so trained,so well mannered,so nice,so cute,so sweet.
i tried my best to save him,yesterday he seemed to be doing well,eating and everything and today he didnt seem too well,i put him on the best food i could get him,medicine which cures em and everything i could do,i cleaned him with cleaning pads too.such a sweet bird he was,it was sad to see the red color of blood in his bright yellow/green feathers.and today in the evening i saw he was ok,then i bought him peanuts,when i went to give him peanuts he was on the floor,i was shocked,took him out and started trying to save him,trying to feed him,trying to put medicine in his mouth and all of a sudden he would move or try to stretch feathers and i would become happy and it happened like thrice till finally he was gone,he was in my hands and i waited and waited for the fourth movement,for him to stretch wings again and come back to life,i wanted him back on my finger but his feet were frozen,he wasnt coming on the finger and past memories were running through my mind like a movie,he was born,he developed feathers,he ate from my hands,he got on my finger,he got injured,he died.
i feel so sad and its like the death of a friend,cos he was my friend,is my friend and will always be.one of the worst moments of my life,my friend,my favourite budgie,Pea,breathing his last in my hands.so helpless the poorguy was,he couldnt lift his neck.
he has a very special place in my heart.i have burried him under our lemon tree in the garden.The last gift i could give him was my smell,he took my smell with him too,i sprayed my perfume on him before i burried him.
Pea,I am very sorry,i couldnt save you.always remember I LOVED YOU VERY MUCH,no other budgie or bird can ever take your place.
i think i have lost interest in the budgies,first thing on my mind for saturday is to give away his murders,those evil babies who killed him cos they were physically stronger then him or whatever.
i wish i was able to kill them,but their good luck,i am going to sell them on saturday and yes i hate those 2 murders very much.
i have seperated both siblings and parents of Pea from the murderers,they are doing good.Pea's mommy had already started a second clutch and i hope Pea comes back,being oldest,i hope the first egg that will hatch this time will also have the same one,maybe my Pea will come back?
PS: Pea's family is very special to me,Pea was very different looking from his family,very bright and beautiful!
Sweet Pea,the pic is old,later he developed feathers completely,looked very beautiful and bright and was very tame.
Pea,Resting In Peace.
