Head for the stars, Comet...
I'm sad to announce the sudden passing of Comet, aged just two years.

He arrived unwanted and young and I ' took him under my wing ' where he settled fast into flock life.
He was quick to pair up with Jocey and he fathered The Flock's first ever chicks.

He continued to maintain a strong bond with the two chicks who I kept, his son Bondi, and his daughter Nava.

He was well loved within the rest of The Flock and was friendly and kind to everyone.

His death came as a total shock and he is my first bird to pass away. E
ven sadder as he was in a breeding cage at the time.
Citrus was yet to lay any eggs and I hadn't witnessed any mating. If she does proceed to lay fertile eggs I think any chicks would be a fitting tribute to such a pretty young bird.

I intend to breed from both his children from last year to attempt to keep his genes flying throughout my flock, and maybe one day I'll get a chick to resemble his beauty.

Fly High, Comet.

I'm so sorry for your loss of beautiful little Comet. He was a gorgeous boy who left a golden legacy in the birth of his chicks, and I know they'll carry on the best of him through the ages to come.
Comet was a very handsome little man who gave his best to his short life, and even though he was only two years old, I'm sure those were the best two years any budgie could ask for.
Even though you'll see his empty perch and miss him all the stronger, remember to look into your heart where he'll always be, singing a cheerful song.
Best of wishes to you in this difficult time :hug:
Fly high and rest well, little Comet. May the sky be streaked with your fire.

So sorry for your loss of Comet. He was a very handsome bird, and I know you'll miss him loads. :budgie:

Oh no, James I'm so sorry to hear this...:( You have my deepest sympathies over the very unexpected departure of your boy Comet. He was very lucky to have been rescued by you and he was surely very happy while under your care.
His legacy will continue to live through his offspring and that is very comforting.

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

I'm very sorry for your loss of darling Comet. :hug:
Comet was such a beautiful fellow and fortunate to have you love and care for him during his time on earth.
When tomorrow starts without me,

And I'm not there to see;

If the sun should rise
and find your eyes

All filled with tears for me;

I know how much you love me,

As much as I love you,

And each time that you think of me,

I know you'll miss me too
So when tomorrow starts without me,

Don't think we're far apart,

For every time you think of me,

I'm right here, in your heart.
~David Romano

Fly high to the Rainbow Bridge sweet Comet, rest peacefully now, wee man.

Rest in Peace, sweet handsome Comet. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. He left us much too soon,but his spirit will live on in Bondi and Nava. I am so sorry for your loss.

How sad I know because I lost Billy far too early but short or long it is always hard to lose our feathered friends as we love them so much from the very beginning.:budge::hug:

So sorry. Fly high little Comet. You know you were loved.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. My daughter's budgie also died suddenly at age 2 year. Still don't know why it happened...he hadn't shown any signs of illness.
