Lenny

Give him loads of attention. I'm sure he'd really love that if he was sick I would definitely get it checked into for Butch's safety I had to get a necropsy for Morris last month which showed that he had psittacosis

Re: Lenny

Awww so sorry to hear this.

Catalinadee is right about being cautious though if you're convinced it was an illness. What her budgie had can be spread via your clothing and breathing in contaminated air...he would never have had to be physically near another bird to make them ill.

Hoping your remaining budgie gets through the mourning phase quickly x

Sad to say but you might need to do bloodwork and testing. In most cases you cannot physically see psittacosis until the last stages I am hoping that it isn't anything like that though, but it is very common

I am so very sorry for your loss; I almost think at times that I've been more upset over losing a bird than I have been over losing a human member of my family -- the line between both is undefined as both are family members.

When hubby and I lost our budgie, Westhaven, and he was a blue and white pied like your bird, we both cried. Not only that, we walked from the vet's office and sat by the water a bit. I looked at the ducks and seagulls, and thought to myself, "They are alive. But my Westie isn't." I was that depressed.

I know it's a cliché, but time helps.

It is like that. You'll whip your head around to call your special bird, and he isn't there. It really hurts.

When our Westie passed, and he was a singly kept budgie, and a talker, I went into a pet store a few days later and saw a kakariki; she was perched on top of a cage. The salesman lied to me that the kak was a male, not that it mattered. I adopted her just to get her out of the pet store.

I adored that bird, we called her 'Sneak'. She was with us for about two and a half years; we didn't know at the time that kakarikis don't generally have a long life span.

We adopted a male budgie, Newman, shortly afterwards because we missed budgie chatter and song -- it's so cheerful, isn't it?

Newman fell in love with Sneak, but she loathed him.

See the hole that Sneak made for herself on our blinds?

She and Newman are being quiet in this pic; but she doesn't like him.



Sneak lost it a couple of seconds later with Newman; I was so lucky to have had my camera on hand.

Sneak: "I warned you, Newman!"

You will always have very warm and loving memories of your beautiful budgie; it might not seem so now as you are hurt and raw, but you'll soon be in that place.

kind of similar situation here. lenny and Butch were friends and butch LOVED lenny and lenny was ok with butch and likes visiting him when they were in different cages. lenny would sometimes bully butch but butch still live him. butch doesnt sing as much and his little bit of training has gone down hill. he is 'special' and i can only get him on the training perch and only for a little bit of time, eventually se stated putting 2 feet on instead of one and i could steer moving the perch up and down (which he didnt really like). now that lenny's gone, he only puts one foot on the perch
