Post worried about my budgie

Hi,

So my budgies are pretty complicated, Olly is blind and he around 8 years old, we have just lost Lola a few weeks ago she was only 4 but had lots of complications in her life (olly basically fed her to death, her crop got blocked and she then had a stroke). Olly has been really quiet and he is just coming around starting to chirp again. Im pretty worried about him, he is definatly showing signs of old age he loves talking into his water pot but recently he has been doing this (see pic) he isnt talking into it and will just stay there. any ideas?

Hi there. I'm so sorry for your loss. In the pic, it looks like Olly is sleeping with his head under the hood of the water bowl. Maybe it helps him to feel secure. Is he moving around the cage at all, eating and drinking? Budgies grieve, so he will be missing Lola, so if you can spend as much time with him as possible, talking to him etc. You say he's just starting to come around and chirp again, so hopefully he's starting to get back to his old self.

Olly looks like a sweet little guy. It is common for birds to mourn the loss of a close friend and experience depression. Each one is different as far as how much time it takes to adjust to life on their own. It’s a good sign if you’ve seen him start to perk up and chirp again. Talk to him, and make sure he is not in an isolated area of the home, now that he is alone. Best wishes for Olly .
