possible cause of cockatiel's death
My 3 year old cockatiel escaped from the home and spent 2 days in the wild before being found (he flew into someone's house 3 miles from us.) He came home and returned to his normal robust self after a day of rest. However, 4 weeks later he very suddenly died. He became lethargic in the afternoon, sitting on the bottom of the cage, and died over night. I believe his feces had been unusual - I seem to recall it being liquidy and bright green in the morning and later that day it was dark. I wonder if his death is related to his adventure in the wild - perhaps a bacterial infection; perhaps the stress triggered a latent chlamydia. Or perhaps it is just a coincidence.
Thanks for your help,
