Argh I hadnt even given her a name I was playing with her last night and she was fine. I had her for 2-3wks. Her food and water dishes were full. I dont acctually know how old she was...so maybe she was OLD! I feel bad for her Its really a mystery as to why she died though. Maybe you guys have some suggestions? Anyways I might go to petland tommorrow and get a new budgie. Unless of course I have some 'budgie killing air' in my house. My mom seen her running around in her cage this morning as well.
I'm guessing she's been sick since you got her. Budgies hide their illnesses as a sick budgie in the wild will be killed first by predators. Did you notice her losing weight or looking lethargic at all?
I'm really sorry for you loss. It's terrible losing a budgie. (((((hugs))))
Acctually she wasnt loosing wieght or anything, but she sure was fluffling her feathers more than usual. Could she have maybe stressed herself out so bad she died. Anyways thank you guys She was just beggining to be nicer too. Oooh well what can I do. Im going to go buy a new budgie now
Bea was right, it very well could have been sick before you even got her. You may already know all of this stuff, but just incase I'll tell you a couple of things that can cause sudden death of birds... being near drafts, eating avacado, ingestion of corn cob cage litter (this can take years to kill the bird, so even if you didn't use it, someone along her life may have), if she is too close to the kitchen when your cooking (teflon emits some sort of dangerous thing into the air that kills birds... and teflon is in almost everything in the kitchen, burners, toasters, cooking pans etc...), using too strong of a cleaner on their cage (I use a mild dish soap watered down and rinse like my life depends on it haha).
Those are just a couple of things to watch out for next time around, if you didn't already know them if you did, sorry for bugging you with this lol.
enjoy your new budgie!
oh! and just incase... be sure to clean everything the other budgie touched very well before giveing it to the new one.
