Hi, everyone. I wasn't going to say anything, but I feel like you all are family. My eyes are tearing up terribly, Turbo (he was in his own little cage with Cookie for about a week, Cookie was his caretaker, little nurse bird. I know you all like Cookie and say he is pretty. He is. Both boys, the best pairing,) Turbo passed away two days ago
It happened somewhat suddenly. I was observing them and thought his feather health (which was never bad) was getting better, no bunched up poops by his vent, and he seemed to be interacting pretty well with Mr. Cookie Bird. So, I let them fly, perfectly normal supervised fly, Turbo was agreeable to coming on my finger and both hung out on top of the boy's large cage, Cookie got some seed from the little feed dish up there and fed Turbo.. and, the next morning, Turbo was passed away and on the bottom of the little cage.
I still have not buried him yet. Flower is under gravel under a rock with a flower on it outside and I want to put Turbo next to her. Screw the nosy neighbors, I have to bury my special birds. I previously laid them to rest next to a lake.. from nature, back to nature, kind of thing.
