2 parakeet's, 1 with seizures, 1 plucking
I have 2 parakeets, 1 is an American budgie and she is almost 6 years old, the other is a female English budgie we rescued 4 years ago so not sure how old she is. In the last few days the American female started having seizures, about 1 every other day now and the English female started plucking all her feathers out.
They are both very healthy and get fruit & veggies every day, are only locked in their cage at night to sleep and we play with them all the time, so they are happy birds. Any idea what might be causing this to happen to both of them ?
We recently bought some dowels to make them a toy and we made sure to get plain ones, just wood, that was a couple weeks ago. We've bought these same ones before to make their swings and never had a problem but we did take the toy away for now just in case.
These girls are like our kids and we lost our male last year Nov. He just started bleeding out one day and was gone 2 days later, just out of the blue after 5 years. I know they don't live forever but I really don't want to loose them.
