Linda and your uneducated comment

All birds coming from pet stores are already in various stages of sickness with some dying shortly after being sold. Others who are new to the infectious disease incubator called a pet store can be in beginning stages of infection and can be diagnosed, treated and saved.

This is not always the case and for you to state this as fact is harmful. I have several birds and the majority are from "pet stores" and they are all happy and healthy. My first budgie is from a "pet store" and is already 10.... so stick that in your beak.
Yes, it is a good idea to have your new bird examined by a vet. Do not "clump" all pet stores together, there are some breeders that sell unhealthy birds....stick that in your beak as well!

Editor's note: You are correct, sorry I didn't catch that and fix her post before approving it.

Liquid coming out of bird that died
by: The Avian Vet

It is possible, but more likely that was just the contents of his crop that was spilling out.

Unless you had the avian vet do a necropsy on the freshly dead body of your bird you'll never know what killed it.

If you get another bird, be sure and take it to an avian vet in your area during the first few days you have it to make sure there are no infections or other physical problems. All birds coming from pet stores are already in various stages of sickness with some dying shortly after being sold. Others who are new to the infectious disease incubator called a pet store can be in beginning stages of infection and can be diagnosed, treated and saved.

We are sorry for your loss, and wish you a better future with your next bird. Make sure you have an avian vet already set and ready to go in case of illness or injury as all birds have to be seen sooner and later by an avian vet. The first few days with a new bird is the very critical time, so get them into be examined right away.

Depends on when you found it "dripping from the beak". It could hsve been bodily fluids from a dead decaying bird, or pus from an untreated infection that killed the bird!
