I'm very, very sorry about Hedwig. That's very sad. Are you ok?

Consider the fact that you loved both of your parakeets before you loved Hedwig. Through your frustration with them, do you still love them? They are living creatures, and so I ask you put thought into this. Maybe you could give them another try? Do what you think is best.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Do you know for sure that the other keets starved her? How can you tell if you're at school all day? The vet may know that she was starving, but it could be her own doing. I've heard that birds will starve before eating unfamilar food. My point is, it might not be the other birds' fault.

I won't try to talk you out of selling them, but please don't hurt them or make them suffer. If they did hurt your baby, remember that they are animals and don't know better like us humans. They have their instincts and I've read that keets will (sometimes) kill a sick keet to protect the flock.

Please accept my condolences, but please make sure you've completely thought this decision through from all angles. You have a right to be sad and angry. But please - don't punish the others as they may be totally innocent.

no i would never be crule to them!! I will treat them wright up till the end wether that be death (NATURAL DEATH) or selling them
i have just come to realize that they will never be a close to me as i wont them to be and to me a pet should not be a decortion on the wall that your friends goggle over but a companion
to me if there is someone out there who may be able to train them give them a better life style then my incredubly low budget can handle then why not
i dont wont a pet i wont a companion
i dont think that animals are just that for gods sake humans are animals and MOST of the time we are worse then any animal that DOSENT know better atleast they dont drive planes in to buildings claiming its for islam and shi*ting on the GRATE name of islam infron of the whole world(wow went off topek a bit...)
but i wont a friend (dont get me wrong i have friends)but i dont wont to be a master wich is what is what i am to them the crule relentless master whom they do not wont to be with. if they dont wont me (and obviously dont) then i feel the best thing for them is to give them to someone whom they will like

Arrow, I think you said that very well. And I think that from what you ahve explained, you are making the best decision for the birds AND you. That's very smart and respectful of you, and I hope it works out.

I won't comment on the situation at hand, I feel differently about it, but you are your own person and you make the decisions with your birds. I will say that I am so sorry for your loss, I know how hard it is to lose a loved one, even just a new one. There are many things that could have caused your babies death, it could have been starving at the store and getting moved with all the stress could have done it, there really are million things that could have caused it, it's very possible your birds have nothing to do with your birds death, all birds will act like like that when a new one is brought in, they must establish who is boss, and usually the newest one is considered the lowest one and treated not as good as the others, thats all normal. It is best to keep new birds in their own cage for a couple weeks at least for quarantine and so the birds can slowly get use to each other, that way they hear and see the new bird before they get put together and so the new bird can learn to eat of out his/her dishes and water bottles. That method is important, I did that with my new English budgie Sam Wise and by the time I put the birds together they were super excited just to be able to hang out finally instead of just chirping at each other. So next time you can do it that way, it is much safer for all your birds, because new birds can be sick and pass on disease to your other birds.

Also I just wanted to mention if you want a bird as a companion then you need to just get one bird. Getting three will only make it 100x harder to train any of them. Two birds are very hard to train, I can't imagine what three birds will be. If you go buy three you will end up with the same thing happening. If you really want three, what you need to do is go buy one bird, make sure he has lots of toys to play with and a little radio to listen to while you are at school, then after you have that bird trained and it has bonded with you then go buy a second and do the same thing train the new one with the other bird until they are well trained and then after that start on your third bird. I must warn you to get a bird fully trained and bonded with you can take 6 months to a year. Yes it can happen in a week, but if you put that bird with another bird all your training will go out the door and you will again have two wild birds, if you give each bird 6 months to a year, they will bond with you well and stay trained, instead of going back to being wild. Honestly though like I said already if you want to have a companion then you should only get one bird. Also another bad thing about three birds is that often they will pair up and you will have two birds that love each other and preen each other and one that sits by themself and gets picked on. SOmetimes it will be ok but it's hard to know, if you do it slowly like I was saying than they would probably be fine to each other. It's all up to you but I highly recommend following what I mentioned, it will make things much better for you. I wish you the best of luck and best wishes and I am sorry for your loss. Jloc
