My bird appeared fine yesterday and this morning. I emptied his food bowl as usual but forgot to put more food in it. I went off to work and didn't get home until late. I found him on the bottom of the cage all fluffed and weak. I fed him immediately. He was so weak that he could barely eat but did manage to eventually eat about a usual meal worth. But he got weaker, went to the bottom of the cage and couldn't get up. I made guardian angel and soaked some millet in it but could not get him to eat any more. He died in my hands a few minutes later. I feel terrible. I don't think a bird can starve to death in 12 hours yet I wonder if it is my fault. This is my second budgie to die at a young age. I thought I was taking good care of him, other than forgetting his food this morning. I am heartbroken.
