That sounds like quite the fright. Did you find blood on anything in the cage? You may want to consider removing it. Something that would tear off part of the cere has to have been somewhat dangerous. It could be just the position of it.
My sincerest condolences. It must have been quite the shock.
Cutie Pie, Olive, Budgie, Baby Boy, Star, Pepper, Ariel, Oscar, Charlie, Little One, Chiclet.
Cutie Pie, Olive, Ariel, Little One and Chiclet are children of Budgie and Oscar.
Budgie and Star left us in 2009. Pepper and Oscar left us this year, 2010. 2018 and all are gone. Ariel and Cutie Pie died this Feb and March. Both over 11 years old.
A good day is a day all your birds are happy and healthy.
Sounded gruesome. The night fright worst than a predator on the prowl. Her mate together in the cage with her could have experienced the worst night fright to witness her death. I doubt the cock killed her.
Sorry for the tragic death of Honey.
RIP Honey. Fly high and fly free to wherever you wish.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die...
