Budgie Passed Today

My budgie, Sweetpea, suddenly passed today. I had noticed for the past week or so he would sit fluffed on his perch. But because of the coronavirus, I couldn‘t take him to an avian vet, so I don’t know the cause.

I got Sweetpea from a pet store 6 years ago. In that time he’d never been exposed to birds other than his cage mate, a 7 year old budgie (who passed just a few months ago) and my green cheek. If it were some sort of disease, would my green cheek have it by now? And what should I do with his cage, perches, and toys? Do I toss them or try to clean them?

I really wish I knew what caused him to pass. I’m so hoping it wasn’t something contagious. It would absolutely shatter my heart if I were to loose my green cheek too.

Thank you
