It saddens me to a announce that my very first budgie, Billy has died today. She was found at the bottom of the cage and there is evidence of her being in a big fight that caused her death. She shared a cage with another female who too had a brood from the same male. I noticed that the egg laying caused her to be weaker as she is an old hen but I thought that she would regain her strength and didn't for one minute think that they would fight as each had their own nest boxes which were kept far apart.
Rest in Peace Billy.
Will never forget you.
