That's a relief that this could just be because Maru was a dork. Not sure which toy he might have gotten hurt by. He is notorious for climbing all over all his toys but there is one or two that have bits that 'could' hurt toes if they got their foot in just the wrong spot. One has welded chain links with paper string through those links and balsa on the strings. The other is the oh so popular sea grass mat with the plastic chains supporting it so its this platform that Maru loves to lay on and the others love to chew.
The how he got hurt might remain one of life's greatest mysteries. I will just be happy once he heals up.

I have the sea-grass mats too and my little Seffra loves laying on it while she chews it!

Keep us updated on Maru's recovery. Hopefully it will be speedy and he'll be back to 100% in no time!

I have some sad news tonight.

Pippin crossed over the rainbow bridge unexpectedly. He hadn't seemed ill until this afternoon where he was floofed and doing a regerg motion. I called my vet and seperated pip. Before running some errands he was eating and perching. He looked unwell but not on deaths door. However when I returned from my errands he was on the cage floor extremely weak. I didnt actually have my phone but managed to get in contact with budgie daddy (who also had my car) to get him home so we could rush pip to the emergency vet.
Sadly pip passed away between the time they took him inside and the time the vet could see him. I had said my goodbyes before they took him away.

We are having a necropsy performed before he is cremated. This all happened so quickly and we dont have any solid idea why. I am in shock and heartbroken. He was a good boy and he's now with his bestest bud Kiger.

I'm so very sorry for your loss of little Pippin.

Fly high and soar freely sweet Pippin; rest peacefully and enjoy your time with Kiger at the Rainbow Bridge.

So sorry for your loss. I hope the necropsy gives you some answers and that it was not something that could effect your other birds.
Fly high sweet Pippin.

Thank you

We saw our vet today for Maru. He was doing the regurg motion and with his toe as it is I wanted to have him seen. Turns out he has AGY (as does Ziggy but not as bad right now. Zigs came along as moral support for Maru who has been pretty down lately) which maybe causing some upper respiratory issues.

SO this means a few things for my flock. 1. We are back on the water meds for everybirdie. 2. Maru is also on oral meds for at least a week. 3. Maru is also getting nose drops but we may or may not continue that after we get the culture back. 4. We are likely going to be doing more regular testing for AGY since we are having such issues with it coming back.

We are waiting for the necropsy results as well. If further action needs to be done we will do what we need to do so my flock is healthy.
I will let you all know when I know what the results are.

So sorry to hear about the AGY.
What did the vet say about Maru's toe?
I'll be watching for the results from the necropsy.

Sorry to hear about the AGY. As you may already know the organism does not always show up in fecal testing. There is an acute form of AGY that can cause sudden death, I wonder if that could have been the case with Pippin. Have you ever discussed giving Amphotericin B directly into the mouth as opposed to having it in the water?

We are giving Maru the amphotericin both orally and in his water. Since Ziggy had some yeast in his sample we are assuming the others are in a similar boat while Maru is worse.

About Marus toe she thinks he dislocated the nail. She doesnt think it will change but just the nail is the best case scenario since he still has use of the toe. We are going to keep his nails short and get him some bigger perches. We are thinking the red splotches are from where he puts presser while perching. Honestly I think something is a bit off with Marus feet to begin with but it was how he developed, not something we can do anything about. Main thing is he can continue to do normal birdie things. Thats what matters.

I will keep everyone posted.

We know the results now from Pips necropsy. I dont have complete detail at this point but the long and short of it is that he had testicular cancer. I have questions and will be calling my vet later today to get a more detailed idea. My main hang up is how he showed none of the symptoms one would expect. No cere change, no weight loss, no leg issues (that might just be with renal cancer). It could just as likely be he just didn't present with symptoms, but I need that clarified.
I will post more later.
