Help my two masked lovebirds died!!
I'm so upset and I want to know what was wrong..
Firstly my lovebirds were young like 4-8 yrs old.
My male lovebird (bluey)died Wed 8 Jan then the female (Angel)died Fri 10 Jan.
The male was in his box alot but came out to eat and sometimes stay out a while to snuggle with Angel. I thought he was old as he was in bed alot and his blue feathers changed white around his beak which I thought was like grey hair..but a vet told me they live until 15.
I did give alot of grey stripe seeds and millet seed which they ate alot. I occasionally gave corn, spinach..but not before they died. I did sprinkle the yellow powder stuff (the one for lorikeets that is mixed with water) throughout their seed but without water.
They do tear up newspaper and put into their water which I was concerned about and I could only change water after a long day at work.
They were both fine cuddling, chirping to music, swinging on the swing and didnt act sick then it was sudden. I saw both of them die. They couldn't stand up then flew/fell to bottom of cage they looked like they couldnt breath and they were gone in 5-10mins.
Please any advice would help!
