Yesterday my budgie sugar died because she was breeding. She was all fine at night and I was pretty sure that she was going to lay eggs and all, but she died. I have been crying over it yesterday and today too. I didn't know that she was so sick. And now my other budgie spice is all alone. I am giving him away because he is going to be really sad if he is all alone. I just can't believe how quick she died. I only had had her for 4 months. I really want to keep spice but i don't want to keep him alone with my cockatiels and neither do I want to buy another budgie and kill that one too. Any advice on what I should do?

I'm very sorry to hear of the events leading to your Sugar's passing... You have my deepest sympathies.

Breeding budgies or any other living being under our care is a very serious task. Before going through the breeding route a person needs to have a very good knowledge of the species, to be able to understand and decipher their behaviours, the ways they communicate, to look at them and be able to tell if they are in good shape health wise or not and to do a whole lot of research in order to have all the bases covered before first attempting breeding and be more prepared in case something does go wrong during the process and provide immediate assistance to the breeding pair and/or the chicks when needed.
Breeding is a big responsibility and leaving things to chance is not the way to go. Close monitoring is essential.

Again I am very sorry, this was a really hard lesson that you had to learn and I hope as you start to heal, the grief and guilt will go away.

Rest in peace, little Sugar.

You can take this time to give some extra attention to your budgie Spice and work on bonding more closely with him. Watch his behaviour as this will give you clues as to how he is coping with the loss of his mate. If you notice he is getting depressed, has lower energy and hardly sings, then you can get him a friend. You don't need to get him a female. Male budgies can bond very well and be happy as best buddies.
If you do choose to rehome your Spice, make sure he goes to a good home.

I'm sorry for your loss of Sugar.

I agree with aluz - breeding is a big responsibility and not something one should enter into without a great deal of research and preparation.

Fly high, soar free darling Sugar; rest peacefully little girl.

I'm so sorry your little girl passed away

I can only offer my condolences in addition to agreeing with all the advice above.

Spice will be very lonely after his mate's passing so be sure to give him a little extra love. If you decide to rehome him, I sincerely hope you find a good home for your little guy.

Sugar will be very missed and I'm sure she knew how much you loved her.

Fly high and rest peacefully, Sugar.

I'm so very sorry for your sudden loss of Sugar, I know you are completely heartbroken and only time will help ease the pain you are feeling right now.

I do feel that your decision to re-home Spice may be a little hasty and seems to be based on some guilt. Please don't let what you didn't know before deter you from learning from the experience and building a brighter future for Spice and for you.

You clearly love your birds very much and I'm sure you provide an excellent environment for them.

Of course Spice will be lonely for a while but rehoming him so soon after losing Sugar may be too much change in one go. - for both of you - remember you are both grieving right now. I really think there is an opportunity here for you and Spice to develop a closer bond and comfort eachother through this difficult time.
Knowing that the cockatiels are around will also comfort Spice - they may be a different species but they are birds and he will recognise that.

What I would suggest you do (if you haven't already) is to perhaps take Spice to the vet for a health check.

Again I'm so sorry for your loss, take care.

Niamh

Oh, I very sorry to hear this!
It is very difficult to lose a pet!
Personally, I have no idea what could have happened, but I feel terribly sorry for both you and Spice, who must be depressed (Yes, budgies do truly love their companions, and feel sad when they die).

Have a nice cup of tea, and try to remember the little budgie.

So sorry to hear of your loss of Sugar, it is never easy when a loved budgie passes. You sweet budgie is now free and flying high with our Angel Flock. her mate will be missing her very much, you both need to help each other at this time, give Spice lots of love and attention. Share the grief and this will help to smile once more when you think of her. Fly high and free little one.
