Default Very Odd Death - :(

Just when I was getting ready to take her to the avian vet (5 hours away) my budgie died.

She was 10+ years old. I found her outside my house three years ago.

Before her death she had both legs/feet paralyzed. I tried to make everything as comfortable for her by picking her up and putting her on a cover and sort of massaging her. She'd lay her little head to the side as I massaged her body. & then before dying her entire body seemed to paralyze.

She died with her wings slightly open (as if going to fly); her head facing forward; eyes wide open. Like a stone.

I've never seen anything like it. I couldn't stop crying.

My sister grabbed her to check if she was breathing at all, but nothing. She was just really hard her entire body. We couldn't even close her eyes.

I'm uncomfortable with the way she died. I don't know why this happened.

I'm so sorry for your loss!
Maybe check in with the vet to see what happened to her system?

i agree it does sound like a stroke - i was told once budgies suffer these and it was thought one of mine had.

I'm so sorry for your loss after 10 happy years- please please take comfort in those 10 wonderful happy years you were so lucky to share with this little angel - and you did you best for your precious babie in his last moments - our thoughts are with you xx

Your budgie spread her wings and flew away to the heavens but only the soul got that far and she left herself like that to tell you that she flew away not fell down. She is living a happy life up in the skies of heaven now flying, hopping and walking without any trouble and with her own legs. Think of it this way and remember she will always thank you for your kindness in taking her in and making her last moments her best. We should all thank you too for helping a budgie that no one else could and in a way no one else would. ~Bella

Our budgie's greatest desire is to bring joy to our lives and to thank us for for the care they receive by being such wonderful creatures. Never forget her....

I am sorry for your loss. I am also sorry for your discomfort but know that budgies die in different ways. I have had them slowly slip away and some struggle breifly upon dying. It just depends on what takes them. She obviously had a great life with you and take comfort in the fact that you were there for her in the end too. It must have been of great comfort to her.
