5 year old Sun Conure suddenly dies..
by Jenna Bixby
My sun conure was about 5.5 years old. When we got him he was much smaller than the rest of the conures. The lady we got him from said he was the runt of the litter. He didn't really grow much and was still pretty small. (bigger than a parakeet, smaller than a cockateil).
My Husband called me at work this morning to inform me that our conure (Stinky) has suddenly passed away. He went to change his water to put him to bed, came back in the room, and Stinky was crawling around the bottom of his cage, squeeked a few times, then fell over and died..
I'm not sure what caused this, my husband looked in his mouth to see if he was maybe choking on something, but there wans't anything. No blood.. no warning.. Just gone..
He didn't show any sign of sickness or illness.. He was always squacking and visiting the other birds in the room like always.
I'm trying to find a vet to do a biopsy incase he had some sort of sickness that could transfer to our other 6 parrots.
Any thoughts on what could have happened?
We cook with stainless steel only and moved into a new house 1 month ago.
Stinky seemed just fine with the move at all and didn't care it all. Just a free loving parrot gone in the blink of an eye...
Any info would be appreciated!
