She has another bird, who we introduced in December, seems fine, we want to get my sister another bird but don't know what killed the first one? We got G-G when he was 6 wks old and that was 11/05. Any suggestions?
I'm sorry to hear about the death of your sister's bird. It is always sad to hear about a bird dying. Did you know you can take the body to the vet and they can find out what killed it? This is important if you have another bird because it could essentially save the other bird.

You also want to monitor your bird's poop. Here's a site where you can study and compare to your bird's poop.

Feather plucking can also be a sign of genetic problems that develop over time with overbreeding in keets leading to physical and pyschiological problems. Also sometimes keets pluck their feathers if they are in pain... as a neurotic sign of illness, maybe from tumors, which are also pretty common in keets.

The above is true as well... boredom contributs as does clausterphobia too. I agree that for two keets, unless they are out all day long except to sleep, need a bigger cage that than that.. Ebay is a good source for cages, local animal resucues, and bird shows are good sources as long as the cages are cleaned and well kept. So sorry for you loss.. I know it hurts. Hang in there and keep your head up.
