sun conure died suddenly
(Hastings, MN, USA)
Cleaned my sun conures cage last night. She was active and walking on the floor and chatting as she usually does. When I came home from work tonight, I started to put fresh food and water in the cages for my birds. When I went into my sun conures cage she was sitting on the bottom with two bloody eggs. I picked her up right away and noticed a considerable amount of blood around her bottom. she was listless and breathing hard. I quickly wrapped her in a towel and turned on a heating pad to warm her a bit, but I was to late.
I examined her cage and found a third egg, which I know is normal, but they were very bloody. I am wondering if perhaps her death is related to laying her eggs so close together with no rest period. I thought they usually laid one every other day.
