My African Grey suddenly died, why?
by Sally Edwards
3 weeks ago we bought a 4 and a half mounth old African Grey parrot, he was bought very cheap as he'd been born with a 'deformed' leg. His left foot curled, where he should have two toes forward and two toes back this was never the case, he'd sometimes have three forward or one forward and so on....
He suddenly died 3 weeks later! We're all heartbroken.
He had more han what he needed, we even boild his fresh water for him everyday!
He suddenly became very quiet and uninterested in anything but was still eating and drinking. Then he stopped eating and drinking and went down hill VERY fast, died that evening infact.
I mention his foot in hope you'll tell me that it could of been something undeveloped inside him like his foot and that it was out of our hands.
I'm 18, we have lots of pets. Stayed off college today totally heartbroken, kicking myself that it's my fault.
I know it's not alot to go on but this is worth a try for me.
Thanks very much for your time.
