Dead Birds
by: Linda

Dead birds usually happen to people who did not notice early signs of infections or parasites or injuries. Birds need to go to Avian Vets at the first signs of illness or when they have accidents and become injured. Signs of illness include and are not limited to listlessness, not eating enough, abnormal stools, discharges from eyes, nose or mouth or any blood coming from ANY place on the bird.

Birds needs to be seen by an Avian vet as soon as they come home with you. Most birds either already have or develop infections from pet stores and being moved around. Pet Store birds are usually already sick, and will need immediate attention or they will die. Pet stores buy from questionable breeders some times, and the birds are sick on arrival at pet store. Always take new birds to an Avian Vet for a complete checkup to make sure they are healthy.

If you did not take your bird to an Avian vet right from the start plus learn all about proper caging, perches and especially food that is nutritious, you have contributed in a very big way to his death.

LET THIS BEAUTIFUL BIRD'S DEATH BE A LESSON TO YOU AS TO HOW YOU ARE TO TREAT A BIRD WHEN YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET ONE. TAKE IT TO VET AT THE FIRST AND ONCE A YEAR AFTER THAT. FEED HIGH QUALITY ORGANIC PELLETED DIET, GET THE LARGEST CAGE WITH APPROPRIATE BAR SPACING YOU CAN AFFORD, AND KEEP YOUR BIRD SAFE FROM HARM OF ALL KINDS.

Lastly, DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU EVER GET ANOTHER BIRD. Read and study what and who parrots are, what kinds of cages, perches, toys and food they need to thrive. Birds are NOT toys, they are living, breathing, sensitive and loving creatures that need your love and care to survive.

Though I do not mean to be harsh, my heart breaks every time I hear a question like yours, that could have been avoided by learning everything you can about your bird and taking him to the proper Avian Vet before he was so sick he died.
