Sick Budgie... Help Me
Hello, this is my first year with parakeets and I don't know a lot about the sicknesses they can get. So of course, my girl, Starburst, became sick I guess. One second she was flying around, the next she was at the bottom of her cage dying. I still have my boy, Jazz, who had been with Starburst for years. I got them from a rescue and they were both older birds, 8, Jazz and 10, Starburst I believe.
I bought a girl parakeet from Petco, Skittles, and she passed away the same way Starburst did. I am very worried about Jazz. He has been acting like Starburst before she died. He has been all puffed up for long periods of time, looking on the bottom of the cage for food, which might be a instict or something. Also, Jazz has been sleeping in the nest I got for Starburst and he is male, he sleeps puffed up with his head back cuddling his face into his back feathers. Jazz is always excited to see me and hand trained him, I really don't want to lose him. Please help! Thank you for your time and help!
