My poor little Sunshine (aka Sunni) died suddenly overnight last Saturday the 25th September. She was 3 years old.
I'm not sure why, but I suspect she'd most likely been unwell for some time. She was always the most aggressive of my bunch, had an unusually short tail, and had visits to the vet and been on and off antibiotics.
It was a bit of a shock to wake up to find only 4 budgies in the cage (my dad had already discovered her early in the morning) but I'm sure she is now in happier place in budgie heaven. I noticed my other budgies were acting strange before I noticed she was gone! They were all sitting together and chirping loudly.
Fly free, Sunni! I've posted some pics in her memory.
