Was my parrot ill drom the breeder?
I bought a 14 week old Indian ringneck last sat. He died suddenley 4 days later. The bird had runny stools the whole time i had him and did't eat for the first day. He seemed ok though and would come out his cage and fly around. I notced on the 3rd day that he would always have his feathers fluffed up and on the 4th day he didn't want to come out his cage, he just slep't fluffed all day. When i looked around, he was hanging on with one foot and was dead, upside down.
I think I was conned and can't get hold of the breeder at all, I don't know where he lives, and his mobile is perm switched off. Does it sound like the bird was ill from the breeder and why would he still be hanging upside down when dead? Did he have a stroke? I looked after him well and knew about fumes/toxic things. I couldn't afford an autopsy. I am devestated.
