Default My lil yellow budgie Lucy died

For the past week my yellow budgie Lucy has been acting strange and was huddling up to my other male bird. At first I thought they maybe were getting ready to breed but then she started showing weakness and hard breathing. I took her to the vet yesterday and she diagnosed her with a respiratory infection and gave me some doxycycline to treat her with once a day. I brought her home and put her under a heat lamp and put the food at the bottom of the cage. Every time I took her out to give her some of the doxycycline she seemed weaker then before especially after this morning. When i came back later this morning she was gone. I feel like it was partly my fault because I was stressing her out giving her the medication and possibly dehydrating her with the heat lamp. I should have been keeping her hydrated with the tube they gave me for her medicine. She was such a gentle and loving bird and she did really cute things. One of her favorite activities was perching on the stuffed animals on the window sills and chirping to the birds outside. I'm going to miss her a lot.

I'm very sorry to hear this... It's never easy to part with a much beloved little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
Please don't blame yourself, you did your very best for Lucy and tried to cure the ailment through treatment.
Time will heal the grief and soon the memories of the good times you had with Lucy will give you comfort.

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

Despite the very sad circumstances, welcome to the forums. I would just like to add that from the first photo you posted, your Lucy was in fact a budgie boy. Male recessive pied budgies keep the immature pink colour on the ceres throughout their lives.

I'm very sorry for your loss of little Lucy.

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often speak your name.
Now all I have is memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which Iíll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in my heart.

~Author Unknown

Fly high and soar freely sweet Lucy, rest peacefully little one.

So sorry to hear of Lucy's passing, budgies can mask illness incredibly well they tend to keep up appearances until the very end. You did the best you could for her and please do not blame yourself. She is now free from pain and flying with our Angel flock. Fly high Lucy. Time will help heal the pain you are feeling smiles will return soon when you think of her.

I'm so sorry. The picture of Lucy and the teddybear is adorable. What a sweetheart. Soar with the angels little Lucy.

I am sorry to hear about dear little Lucy. Please do not feel guilty about stressing her out with giving her the meds.( I remember trying to do that through tears with one of my ill birds and I felt awful. After a month of the meds,daily trips to another avian vet since one was on a trip to get injections etc. I decided to let Jeffrey go in peace.) It is very hard but do not beat yourself up. Everyone told me and as I look back, I did the best I could. And you did too. You have found a forum of great bird people. Your Lucy will be missed.
Your male bird needs extra attention now too. Thinking of you....

I'm so sorry to hear Lucy passed away

It's clear you did all you could and gave your little friend everything a budgie could ever want.

Lucy is flying high above you, remembering all you went through together. Although gone on earth, the memories will always stay.

Rest in peace and fly high, Lucy
