4 mo old love bird died suddenly
I was holding my fischer lovebird i purchased 3 wks ago at a pet shop. I used a small towel, he bites/not tame. I have held him about 2 other times for no longer than 2-3 min. I sat down with him and was petting him on the head. He bite the towel, then settled down. i saw him start to close his eyes so I moved my hand a little and he was alert. Then he started to close his eyes again, I petted him and realized he died????
I was in shock. What happened?? I feel so bad. maybe if I didnt hold him and let him be wild he would be ok. He seemed very healty, climbing all over his cage , eating, drinking, chirping in AM and evening. I dont understand i. he seemed vey healhty and strong.
