Sudden Sun Conure Death
Hi, Im just wondering if you can shed some light on the tragic loss of our bird. One minute he seemed to be fine, then shortly after he was bobbing his head and seemed in a daze. It was bedtime so I put him in his hammock and covered his cage. Shortly after he fell to ground and was clearly dying. There was a huge bloody poo on the floor of the cage,and when we picked him up, fluid came up out of his beak. He was gone, he was only 4 mths old.
Over the past few days, he had shredded the wood on his swing,which was leaving shavings of wood everywhere, do you think he could of digested some wood and had internal bleeding? Or could it have been a health condition? (he has had two or three epidodes of this strange head bobbing/daze before.) Your thoughts on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
