RIP Dexie...

My oldest pet/bird died last night... I got some pics and vids before she died. She was at least 13. Is that a normal age? I sure hope it's not my fault...

I'm trying to rub her head, but as you can see, she's barely responding....


....



Here I am holding her in a picture one last time...

Rest in peace poor baby. A lot of tiels don't even make it to 13 so that's a really good age, though they can live a lot longer. Sadly most don't I hope you're okay!

Thanks... I'm all right, I guess. Kinda depressed. Can't sleep, obviously.

Its awful to lose a bird, I still cry over my Indian eagle owl, Axel. She passed a year ago in a few weeks and it kills me. I can't look up the garden without thinking she's there I had a budgie die not that long ago too its horrible.

I know, it is... my peacock was killed by some dogs. So, that's two of my birds in one year...

I'm sorry for your loss. Even though tiels can live longer, my avian vet tells me that MOST companion parrots only live about half of the life span that you will find recorded as their possible life span. This is just the way it is, and that is not your fault. In the wild, they generally live even shorter lives.
I'm sorry about your peacock, too.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

So sorry for your loss... Tiels can live up to 20 but as Nanay said, most don't make it that far. The average is 10, 15 years max. So your girl lived longer than average and lived a very happy life. I'm sorry about your peacock as well

Yep. And All I can say is, I want them dead! They killed some of other birds too, so we only had about fifteen afterwards.

@Everyone else: thank you so much!

It's very hard, but you can't blame the dogs - they were acting on instinct and are poorly trained. It's the owner's fault entirely for letting them loose, not training them, and not respecting his neighbors

I've been there - my little brother's pet rat killed one of my birds, one that was very special to me, and for the first day or two I wanted him dead, or out of the house but... it wasn't his fault, it was my parents for opening my bird's cage when I wasn't home and letting the rats out at the same time. Ironically, Ren (the rat) died a few months ago, 3 years later, and I was the one who took him to the vet to be euthanized (my parents work, my brother had state testing) and held him until he passed. I cried and laughed at the same time, rubbing his ears and telling him "you lucky little pain in my @#$&* you're lucky I still like you and am nice"

I know... you're right. Except we don't know who the dogs belong to. We haven't let our chickens, turkeys and guineas out since

And I'm sorry about the bird that that the rat killed

Oh jeeze, that's awful. Have you called your local animal care & control to report it? Maybe they can keep an eye on the area and, if you can contain the dogs in your yard they will pick them up and at least get them off the street. And thanks

Oh! I hadn't thought of that... that was a while ago, though. It might be a bit too late. And we live out in the country, I doubt they'd come out so far away from OKC. But thanks for the suggestion.

You're welcome .

I know exactly what you guys are talking about! We once raised ducks, while we had them outside in the night (under our truck) to get them ready to be released... We woke up to see a duck without a head! It was mine too!!! Oh how ticked I was!!!!!!! I was crying SOOOO HARD! We saw a black cat wondering around lately so we thought it was that.... Just last winter I was walking around in our woods in our backyard and saw a freshly dead BLACK CAT!!!!! I ran out of the woods EXTREMELY FAST!!!

Oh my God, that's sick!

I cried when I found a chick missing the skin over its head! I wish I could have done something, but he had just hatched. That has nothing to do with another animal killing it, but still, I've been through something similar
