Fly free, baby Mia.

I am very sorry for my absence, but sadly, our little Eclectus girl, Mia, passed away last week on Sunday, she was only nearing 6 months old.

It was like any other day. Got up, uncovered Mia, she squawked as soon as she seen me which we say is/was her way of saying ‘good morning’ to us, and I gave her breakfast (Roudybush hand-feeding formula). I checked her again later on, she was sitting on her boing happily, and all was absolutely fine. Come dinner time, well for her, she looked really bad.

I got her out of the cage, and while I was holding her, all of a sudden, her wings would flap uncontrollably, her feet clenched, and she went really stiff and unresponsive - this happened a few times, and the last time she took a few breaths and passed away. I sat with her on my chest for a bit, crying so much, I didn’t want to let her go, but my mum took her, and they (my mum and brother) buried her.

It all happened fast, and unexpectedly, we are incredibly devastated.

RIP little Mia, you were, and are, loved so much, and we will miss you and never ever forget you, I hope that you know this.

The rest of the flock is fine, I have been keeping a very close eye on them, and they are all acting their normal selves. Mia was kept in my mums bedroom away from the others, and although I didn't get a necropsy done (as much as I wish I had), I am 100% certain it was seizures, and the cause could have been anything underlying like heart failure, tumor, metabolic problems etc.

Thanks guys.

So happy to hear everyone else is fine... sometimes we never really know what happened even with the necropsy.. I hope you are ok, I know what a shock it must of been.
