Unhappy She didn't have a name yet

I'm sure some of you have seen me post in a thread can't remember the title but it was about some one's bird chewing (or not chewing on things) and wanted to know if it was normal

I had mentioned the youngsters of our budgie clan decided to take up nibbling on my wall (none of my older budgies have ever chewed on my walls)

which I couldn't figure out why they were eating / chewing/ nibbling at the wall when they have tons of stuff all over the room intended for them to chew on (all wood clothes pins, whiffle balls, grapevine balls(aka munch balls), Strands of newspaper tied different places all over the room for them to chew on, beads to play with - my list can go on and on Point is they have Stuff for them to chew on that is FINE for them.

well we covered the spot on the wall they'd been chewing on - But it was too late

The last baby of Sky and violets 2nd clutch(yellow face violet Opaline we docked her name for now as Jessie look a like), Was puffed up off and on yesterday but i honestly didn't think she was ill, it was not constant, and she was still flying around, and playing with the other birds, but in between the play time i noticed she'd sleep allot more then normal, I walked in once and she was asleep in community cages food bowl, few hours later she was sitting on the back of the rocking chair sleeping (this was not unusual they like to sit on the back of the chair and nap while getting a bit of sun rays), a few hours later she'd moved to the table top perch and was sleeping (again not unusual they've done it many times)

went into today fed them, let them out to play, watered them every one was fine and dandy, went back about 30 minutes later my b/f was taking the nest box off Belle's cage, because her babies have come out and are out flying with every one else all day , So i could take the cage out side and give it good scrub

while i was waiting for him to get done taking it all off and getting the cage off the shelf for me i was watching all the birds playing and looking around and noticed I couldn't find "Jessie look alike" I asked my b/f if he'd seen her, he said not since this morning when he opened the cage and they all did the normal fly out (gotta watch how you stand when you let them out they'll run straight into your legs if you don't move )

Well i grabbed the cage and headed out the bird room door, when i turned back to close the screening i saw something odd laying under part of the community cage, So i sat the cage down and re opened the screen (the screen is black and it makes it hard to see some stuff the correct way), and i said WELL i found Jessie's look alike, so my b/f moved the cages and she was laying there dead

So I've buried her with Lily, Mickey, and the baby tiel who died out front of my living room under the tree

There are 2 possible causes for her death,

I noticed the other day the toy I made from the hanging flower pot plant holder thing had the green coating bit off ( i checked it often it wasn't like that last time i checked which was Sunday evening when I put the birds to bed)

So that was promptly removed toys taken off of it and hung in it's place

or it was from them chewing on the wall (which is drywall)

This bird is the only one who showed any signs of being ill even know it was just yesterday

I'm in the bird room every day many times a day normally for at least a hour each time (even if i say i'm only going in to get some pics i'll be right back) my b/f and kids know don't except to see me for at least 30 mins or more I always sit back there and lose all form of time.

this really makes me angry, She was fine up until yesterday and her "signs" wasn't of a sick bird, I thought a sick bird was fluffed up ALL the time she was not.

They were never around the birds in quarantine (which all seem to be fine) The birds i already had get taken care of first then the new ones get fed last and I scrub my hands, nails, arms well when ever i touch any thing of the new birds, rather its the blanket i cover their cage with, their dishes or just putting a finger on their cage

I just don't understand how she can be gone.







But my plea to every one is Pay close attention to what your birds are chewing on, even know I took away and covered the things mine chewed on as soon as they started chewing on it - it wasn't fast enough.

I am so sorry that you lost one of your beautiful little babies Who would have thought drywall. But I guess it probably is treated to prevent mold and such. Just as an aside (so you do not have to worry about your other babies) could she have broken her neck? Whatever the reason, it is really sad. I am so so sorry for the loss of your little one.

it's a possibility but not as likely as the other 2 causes

drywall is usually made of that chalky plaster stuff, if she was eating a lot, she would have gotten a crop impaction.
