Default RIP chirpy

I got 2 budgies for fathers day this year,but sadly chirpy past away within the past hour. He was fine up until today when he started showing signs of some sort of illness,ruffled feathers,wet beak and not interested in sparky as much. He was still eating and drinking and climbing around. Feels so sudden,and I feel responsible,did I not feed him right or feed him the right food.its actually hit me hard. I've given him the best spot in the garden,I'm sure he'll be happy there. I'm now worried about sparky,he's looking around the cage a lot and chirping,he knows his friend isn't there any more. How will he take the change? Probably wrong place to ask advice for this but don't know where to ask on here.

I'm very sorry to hear of your Chirpy's passing... You have my deepest sympathies.
Unfortunately, budgies are able to hide illnesses very well and to the point that when we first see something is not right and we want to make things better, we realize it's too late despite our efforts.

Rest in peace, little Chirpy. You were much loved and will be missed.

At this point I think the best thing to do is to wash and disinfect the cage where Chirpy was and keep a close eye on Sparky. You can book an appointment for him at the vet's, so that he is properly checked out and to make sure he is healthy. That will give you some peace of mind, too.
You can also take the opportunity to form a closer bond with Sparky by spending more time with him and depending on how things go then you can decide whether he is happy and thriving by being a solo bird with plenty of human interaction or if he's better off with a new same species friend.

Thank you for your reply,I see you've also lost a budgie,it means a lot. I'll give sparky lots of attention and see how he gets on and take him to the vets,thank you again.

It probably is from nothing that you did wrong. A lot of budgies sold do not live long. I once had a high quality store to get my birds from. They were healthy for many years and both lived to 13 years old, one a bit older. Since that store went out of business, have not had any birds that lived near that long, and many pricey vet bills I have had on behalf of the latest birds. I got a dog awhile back, as I wanted a pet who would not die so soon.
