They were my best friends, always waiting for me to return from school. They would sing when I did come in, and they taught me that it's okay to be unique. They showed me this by doing tonnes of silly things such as sleeping upside down. They used to playfully attack and preen me as I entered... I don't think I will get over it anytime soon. Sam was ill, really Ill. That's why I got him, I suppose. I wanted to heal him but it was too late. Soon Casper got the illness and went blind. I let him out and realised a door was open and I hurried to close it and he flew through it went it... Due to the door breaking his skull, he died quickly...
i am sorry for your loss i too blame myself for one of my budgies deaths, but it was a freak accident while i was out of the room and i thought the cat was outside. i was going to put him back in the cage, but her was sleeping so peacefully and so i let him be....
I have 8 parakeets, a cat, a rabbit, 2 frogs, 2 newts, about 22 self cloning marbled crayfish, 7 fish tanks, and 2 bettas. my 9 'keets are beyond spoiled with my DIY toys and 2 big trees to play on

We cannot help but blame ourselves/feel guilty when some accident happens but that is the awful thing - accidents do happen. Your darling budgies know how much you loved them and still love them - hold your memories of them close
A death by accident must be especially hard to deal with. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss and send you thoughts and prayers. I felt guilty for ages about not being able to be present when my Cheeky was put to sleep. But now I remember all the good times we had together.
