Keeping calm
Hi everyone,

I'm sorry if i go on a bit in this, but i am worried.
So, i have two budgies who are 3 and 2 years old. About 6 months ago, i rescued a lovebird which was found in a local park and wasn't claimed by his owner. I kept him in a different cage to the budgies, but they were always next to eachother and would fly together out of the cages. He was given a clean bill of health by a vet.

Tragically, this evening, Jeff, my lovebird had a heart attack and didn't survive. 😢

My budgies are now flying around looking for him. Is there anything i can do to stop them getting too distressed?

Any advice is hugely appreciated x

I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Jeff. :hug:

The budgies are naturally curious about where Jeff went, but they will be fine. It’s normal for birds to behave this way at the loss of a friend. Some birds even get depressed for a bit and mourn. Good news is that birds are very resilient, and they move on quickly. Usually much more quickly than a mammal pet would. They’ll be okay soon. I promise! Take care yourself.

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your little lovebird. :hug:

Spending extra time with your budgies will help them deal with the loss of their friend.
