Help! Why did my two lovebirds die?!
They were acting normal.. tweeting, eating, sleeping happy etc and then they both died suddenly 2 days apart.
Here's some info that may help with the cause..
I gave them mixed seed to eat and the only diffrnt thing I did was gave them stems of millet seed to eat and they ate alot..also a bell of sunflower seeds and they were all stuck together somehow...also I mixed the yellow nectar powder 4lorikeets in their mixed seed.
We had a gas heater on when home during ngt and switched it off at ngt.. I did get very cold at nght so I rugged the cage up in towels and they slept 2ghtr in their breeding box.
Their water was dirty when I got hme (I'm gone 12hrs a day) and I'd find ripped up newpaper, some feathers-as the male often bathed in it and maybe a dropping.
They both went when I was home I saw them acting fine then not being able to stand uprgt and fly to bottom of cage and beak open and close struggling to breathe :(
then dead in 10-15mins the boy went then 2days later the girl and she was acting normal- tweeting to music,swinging on the swing.
The are indoor birds but on wkends I wheel the lrg cage out so they r happy to chat to lorikeets who land on top of cage somtmes.
Pls help! What happened? Thanku
