Choirmom, I’m so sorry to hear your sad news about Yellowbird too. It always breaks our heart when our baby is in pain...I lost my first keet last year due to illness too so I understand how you feel. Best wishes to both of you!!!!
I talked to a few neighbors this morning; one of them saw a parakeet perched on the top of the bird cage like...2 months ago. My heart skipped a beat when I first heard the story, until he said the 2 months part ~_~. I’ll probably get another male to even out the flock, it’s just so sad & different every time I look at the cage now - even with the 3 keets left, it just looks so empty, so depressing.
Babyblue, that sounds like a very scary moment & I’m very glad that you got your baby back, it's truly a miracle. I just feel so frustrated cuz one of my greatest passions of owning caged birds was to leave the cage open as much as possible when I’m around so they could have some freedom => and that’s how I lost Peace at the same time too you know...I know they are caged birds, that’s how they’ve been raised, but I always feel bad they’re locked in the cage all day long, no matter how big the cage is, or how many toys & treats I bought. So when I just lost Peace, I actually have the thought of giving up having birdies altogether. I get too paranoid & scared when I open the cage, it just feels so weird. But I know I can never give up on them, there are too many unbelievable bird owners out there (I saw a tiny cage with 4 cockatiels & 1 parakeet this morning, along with many more similar cases seen before). I know I still want to help as many as I can - but with a whole lot more cautions from now on. 1st bird lost mainly from sister dropping birdie into toilet, 2nd one from Mommy letting the house door opened, maybe I should just lock the cage when I’m not home from now on...
