Why are my budgies dying

(Adelaide, AU)

I have 4 budgies die on my the first pair, I had for two week which I purchased from a pet store, one night the was a lighting storm and a large clap above my home and the next morning the were die so I naturally thought the thunder shocked them to death, the cage is not a normal size the cage measure 3mx2m and has a small bush growing inside the cage.

On of the budgie I had one week early to the second one. I replaced the tow that died because of my son with another two were purchased from a differnt pet shop and lived for 2 weeks these birds were both males and in the last two day I have interjuice a female into the cage and I tonight have found the two males dead, one in the shelter box and the other was on the ground, the previous pair were the same one in the box and the other on the ground. So far the female is still alive, this time I clean out the shelter box and put grass for comfort, think the might be something in the box that could be kill them.
I really would like your option
thank you

Budgies dying

Yes, something in your cage may be killing the birds and also you may be buying sick birds. Good breeders take their birds to avian vets to make sure they are well before breeding them and they take their babies to the vet before selling them.

I suggest that you purchase only from a good breeder, and then become a good breeder yourself by studying the best way to care for your birds, what is dangerous and what is safe, and Find an Avian Vet that can check your birds for illness.
