Birds dying

There is no telling without an examination. It could have been a tumor, it could have been from egg binding.

To prevent egg binding, feed your budgies 60% high quality pellets and only 40% healthy treats and that includes seeds. High quality pellets are not full of chemicals, coloring or sugar. Our avian vet suggests Harrison's or Roudybush pellets.

Here is our Switching Budgies To Pellets article and our Switching Birds To Pellets article to help you convert your birds if you need help.

Most parrots should be eating 80% pellets and 20% treats.
