On November 12th, I adopted a little budgie named Gertjie. Her family moved to overseas and couldn't bring her with. She settled in quickly, and she was the sweetest little budgie. She even slept on me and accepted head scratches. Unfortunately, on November 17th, I found her dead at the bottom of her cage. It was a huge shock. I think old age, bad genes, poor diet, and/or stress gave her a heart attack.

Rest in peace little one.

What a beautiful little old lady birb your Gertie was .... I'm sorry she passed away so soon after you brought her into your home and life.

Looking at the last photo of her snuggling with you I am sure she was very happy that she had lots of love and attention and good food and care before she passed over the rainbow bridge.

Sorry for your loss Birdybee.

Thank you... by looking at the ring around her eye, she is obviously an old bird. She was also an albino, and albino have bad genes. She had a seed diet her whole life, and I was still busy converting her at the time of her passing, so I am sure she had multiple health issues.


I'm really not sure why she passed. I'm just sad that it had to be so soon.
