Lovebird died
by: Tracie

I am soooo sorry to hear about your precious bird. The only way to know why your bird died is for you to take is body to an avian vet for testing.

I am so sorry for your loss. Its amazing how much we can love these little balls of feathers. I'm not a vet but I have always been told that if the keel bone is sticking out its a sign of weight loss. If thats the case he had probably been sick for a while. Birds are very good at hiding illness until its very advanced. They even pretend to eat.Did his dropping ever change. Thats always a good indication of illness. I weigh my birds at least every 2 weeks and more often if i suspect an illness and keep a record of it so I can show my vet.
