I'm sorry about Hedwig but you shouldnt get rid of your other keets, you put Hedwig with them too soon, they got territorial, normal human nature!! Thats why you have to start them off in two different cages and let them get used to each other!

I dont think getting rid of them is the best thing to do, I understand your upset but its not like they did it to kill the bird! So maybe have another family member look after your keets for now, give yourself time and then take them back!

I am so sorry for your loss, I know how hard it is to lose a pet and it wasn't so long ago that I lost one of my parakeets Elly and the pain is still very fresh in my mind.

I think blondelostnny has a good idea letting someone watch your keets for awhile, when we're in grieving it's really hard to make objective decisions and while I am sure you've weighed this over many times, you might want to hold of on anything definitive till you've given yourself time to grieve. As many people mentioned there are a variety of reasons head wig may have starved. It took Kivan and Elly the first keets I got awhile before they'd try their new food and many keets do starve in the beginning b/c of that reason they don't feel secure enough to eat. In the future always quarantine the new birdies for a few weeks to make sure it's healthy and wont pass on sickness to your other keets, that it's eating, and has a chance to adjust to its new environment before introducing it to the other birds. If you want a strong bond between your bird then it is best to have just one or start at with one and work with the keet, it takes tremendous patience, they wont always take to you right away and you have to be persistant and try not to get pesimisstic when progress is slow or none existant they'll resond better if you're patient, calm, confident, and optimistic, then if you try and train them when your irritated and/or rushed. It can be such a slow process the training but don't give up, don't think it's just this bird that's unfriendly (it may be) but you can't approach them with that attitude.

I wish you the best and if you decide to give your keets away be sure and give them a good home. I also reccomend giving yourself some time to grieve before buying a new keet.

If Hedwig was pooping normally, she WAS eating.

Did you ever see him/her eating?

Even if you didn't, chances are, s/he was.

Did you buy any chance buy Hedwig from a petstore?

Why I want to know: my first parakeet was VERY docile, and was on my finger the day I bought him home. I thought he really liked me, too. He ate a lot, and his poops were normal, but suddenly he kept getting weak (after only having him a few days). I took him to the vet and the vet told me he starved to death.

Kind of a coincidence our stories are so similair.

What my bird had was a disease that wouldn't allow him to extract any nutrients from his food, so he kept eating, but was starving to death =(

If you're absolutely sure this can't be what was wrong, was your cage too small? You need a food dish for every parakeet, a water dish for each, etc. If you crowded them together, chances are they felt like there wasn't enough room and they got territorial.

I am sorry to hear about your loss.. that is very heartbreaking. You have a right to your feelings... and honestly if you cannot overcome your feelings of hurt towards your keets it would not be good for either you or them to be together..

I do not not think you are a bad person in any way... everybody deals with things differently and that is okay. From what you said it sounds like your keets are bonded together and not to you.. If this is case, then it should not be too traumatic on them if you find them a good home...

It is hard to lose something you love.. but try to forgive your birds no matter what. The vet does not know everything, he does not live with you and did not see... He is drawing conclusions.. Also if he was so sure why did he not pick up the bird wasn't eating and being picked on when you brought Hedwig in before for the check up?.. Did you ever think about that? How did he miss that on the checkup? If your keets were picking on Hedwig there would have been there signs then as well.. The point is you just never know.. It may have had to do with genetics.. it may have been your keets.. it may have been illness.... without labs you will never know.

I know it does not matter now.. It does not take away the hurt, and again I am truly sorry for you loss..

Jloc is correct though if you want a close relationship with your bird only get 1 to start.

Best of luck to you..and I truly hope you will be okay..
