Default Princess has passed away...when I was out of town

This weekend, I had scheduled to visit Indiana for my grandma's birthday. She has cancer and is weak in health, so we combined all the winter holidays with her birthday and threw it on one day. Two days before my flight, Princess was fluffy and sulking in the bottom of her cage. After a heat lamp did not improve her disposition 24 hours later, I took her to an ER vet after she began to manically search for a different food than I have given her. Princess would only eat canary seed, dissing the other seeds in the mix that she currently ate. I suspected that she was having a nutrition issue, possibly due to a failed liver. Princess already had a lipoma.

The ER vet gave her fluids, and a calcium shot in case she was egg binding. Any further details would have to be done through bloodwork at an avian vet. I got home at 3 am, worked 7 hours the next day, then had to be on a plane. There was nothing I could do; even if I went to the avian vet, blood work results would take days to process. I left cautionary instructions with my bird sitter.

During our big family party, I got a phone call - Princess Snowflake Awayukikan was found dead in her cage. I had told her good bye before I left in case this happened, which helped lessen the blow. I just got home tonight, and got to see her, all soft and fluffy but chilled from the freezer. She was a beautiful bird with a haughty, regal personality and I will be giving her as royal a funeral as I can.

Although the family weekend went well, it was personally a disaster. I missed a concert for a band I had waited 8 years to reunite, Princess died, the fan in my laptop died, and I discovered that I forgot to pack underwear. That may also be the last time I see my grandmother. T_T ugh.





The only good news is that I can now keep Mr. Bird, the blue bird, whom I was going to give away because he wouldn't stop feeding Princess.

I was saddened to read of the passing of your sweet little Princess, and your personally disastrous weekend...sometimes these things are meant to test us.

Rest in peace little Princess.

I am sorry for your loss as I went through it a few weeks ago with my hen, Daffy. One point I dont understand is why would you want to give Mr. Bird away just cause he was always feeding Princess? Its normal for a male to feed his mate. Anyways, I hope he is doing okay too.

Thank you for the kind words and I'm sorry for the loss of your hen too. The reason I was going to give him away was because the over-feeding gave Princess a lipoma. She weighed 50 grams, and my other birds weighed around 30ish. In addition, the mating urges caused fights with another one of my female birds that resulted in bit and bloody feet, a broken toe, and even a toenail fell out. I had her separated just so I wouldn't have to deal with that.

Rest in Peace, sweet little Princess. Keep her memory close to your heart and she will be with you forever. Take good care of Mr. Bird. He needs you more than ever now.

I see and I understand what you mean. Yeah 50 grams is too much for a bird. We go through the same fights and bloody toes and stuff like that too. We do try to keep the hens from biting through the cage bars at toes but we cant catch it everytime so we have first aid cream on hand for those. You cant prevent breeding sometimes. Thanks for your consolences on my loss. It is hard on me too. I held her up to the last second. Normally Daffy wont allow me to hold her and normally she bites HARD, but that day she didnt. She laid in my hand for a full half hour while her mate, Marlon was calling to her and trying to feed her. Marlon was upset cause she wasnt responding to him. Daffy then wanted to go back in her cage so I let her and set her down on the floor of her cage and then she had a massive seizer and passed on. Marlon practicly screamed his head off and flew around going crazy. He kept coming back to her body over and over trying to get her to get up. We kept telling him she is gone. My mom forced Marlon out of that cage which was Daffy's for 7 years and made me move him in with the boys. I told her it was too soon for him, but she wouldnt listen. Marlon finally a few days later found a new mate. Believe it or not, his new mate is Daffy's oldest daughter Greenie. Dont worry her father is not Marlon and they love each other. I just wanted to tell you Daffy's story. Her death is from a tumur in the area of her ovaries or something like that.
