It is sickly strange around here. Sydney was my first bird, he has always been here.
Yesterday Adélie played football a lot! So I left all the birds caged while she was playing, I didn't even go in the room. I can hear the bell from all over the house so I just listened to her from a distance.
Today she came into the living room with me and my partner. After a while she was calling and I could hear Gis replying, so I went and brought him. She seems ok in his company, but wants clear distance. And he's pretty soft so he will back off and not invade her personal space. They played together, ate together, and bathed in the kitchen sink together.
She has foraged for seed with the flock too, and they get on ok, but Lapis tried to attack her if they get too close.
I'm glad she has the other birds nearby to give her company, but I still worry about her.

I just get this feeling like I can wake up and go say good morning to the birds, and he'll be there, but he's not. Or I let the birds out to fly, and I look for him and he's not there. It's also heightened by his striking colour that is missing making it visually, quickly obvious he is not flying with the others.

We are truly heartbroken. He was just so special in so many ways. He was so beautiful on the outside and on the inside, he was an incredible little soul. So friendly, you could come and sit in my house and call him and he'd come over. He my partner and I's first companion animal together, I already had Jacob, he was very young, but I brought him with me to the relationship. He was my first bird. I can't believe he was the first to go. I will never not be shocked at that, or how he passed away so suddenly.

It just was his time for whatever reason and at least he was home safe and loved to the end. Nerd bird was mostly fine till he wasn't after 31 years together. BUT he was old so could have just been his time too and I think about if I'd noticed he wasn't his normal self what would have happened but it's been long enough I can think of all the good times and not be sad. Your boy had a good life and it showed in how nice and loving he was with everyone he met:sadhug:

I'm shocked at how suble the things were. I am the best of worry warts, and will take the birds to the vet as soon as they look a little wobbly or vomit etc.
But I never saw this coming.
I feel robbed of another ten years with him. He was a healthy bird, he should have enjoyed a longer life.
I am so sorry. I'm glad it wasn't a long, wasting illness, as cold a comfort as that is. All the vigilance in the world can't tell us exactly what is going on in those tiny bodies. I know the time he had with you was rich and wonderful.
