R.I.P Lola x

R.I.P Lola
My beautiful Lola passed away this morning. She was just 4 months old. I can't think what happened. Do birds poop after they die? She had a lot of poop on her bottom. If I'd had time to get to know her better, I could've saved her

I would like to get a new bird. She was great, not very loud, very sweet, and enjoyed time out of the cage. I don't know if I want another princess parrot, because it would remind me of her. What birds are similar to the princess parrot? Also does anybody know somewhere I could get a bird shipped to Austria, or if that's a good idea?

Dear Lauren, that's awful news!



Fly free, little Lola, it's so sad that you were not meant to live longer.

Lauren, if you want to get a new bird it's better to buy it in Austria.
An Austrian member of a German forum wanted to buy linnies in Germany.
But there would have been so much trouble to import them to Austria that she decided to buy budgies. The Austrian laws are very strict.

What awful news! So sorry to hear Perhaps she already had the faeces stuck around her vent and you hadn't noticed. It's usually a sign of illness. If I had seen this earlier I would have told you to get her in with a vet for a necropsy but as it's been 2 days I'm assuming that she's been buried. It would help you get to the bottom of it and then you would know whether or not it would be wise to get a new bird in straight away. If you are planning on getting a new bird, clean everything using a very strong disinfectant like F10. It can kill any bugs and diseases. As for when you get the bird it would be worth taking them for a full blood work up if you can so you know if there's any hidden nasties

As far as I'm aware, you cannot import or export birds in and out of Australia. I may be wrong, but I'm sure it had something to do with PBFD? I'm going to google it now...

Okay I can't find anything on it. Hopefully Kate or another Aussie member can chime in and help me out here

Other species similar to the Princess of Wales parrot are the superb parrot, the crimson winged parrot, the Australian king parrot and a few others. You can also get rosellas (various species) but I personally don't think they make good companion parrots. They're far more suited to being in an aviary. You've also got smaller species like the grass parrots and Bourke's (Bourke's parrot, scarlet chested parrot, turquoisine parrot, red rumped parrot etc.) but again, many of them do better in an aviary. In fact, I find most large Aussie parakeets do! And the smaller guys seem quite flighty too which is why I think they'd do better in an aviary

The best Australian parrot, IMO, is going to be the cockatiel. They have very expressive crests, they come in awesome mutations, they're mostly quiet (more so the females), they're very inquisitive, they're naturally friendly, they can be very cuddly, the males usually pick up whistling really well, they're inexpensive to buy and very easy to keep happy. I just love them. I think they make the best companion parrot out there

I'm so sorry. Sometimes there is nothing you can do when they are sick because the first sign is when the die. Take comfort that while she was with you she was loved. I really do believe that they know we love them and love us back.

Thank you all for your kind words. She sure has been missed. I live in Austria! The laws are very strict here. I think I'm going to get a new bird from a other breeder. Thank you all for your help. X

Not at all! Many people make the same mistake. We've had many things sent to Australia instead of here! I've narrowed it down to the beautiful cockatiel, the lovebird, or the parrolet. The cage has been disinfected, everything has been thrown out, ready for a new buddy.
