    D'ni  (pro: Dun-nee)  Passed away on the evening of the 3rd  aged two and a half.  

    In middle December 09 I had a phonecall by a breeder who'd taken on quite a few chicks and adult Budgies, Tiels and Lovebirds who's breeder had passed away at home and sadly not been found for a few days, resulting in most of his breeding stock & chicks passing away.    I took on some of the budgies as I'd recently lost my own budgie of 9 years,    my two were just 5 weeks old and in a very sorry state, they stayed on formula for another week, and seemed to perk up very nicely.  They never fully matured in size, and have both had their share of health issues over the last two and a half years.    

    D'ni was a stressy budgie, especially after feeding -  It's sad to think that even the little ones suffer such mental trauma as their bigger cousins.  She seemed to suddenly like the idea of cage swapping, and would reguarly go visiting my GCCC and my other parrots, she had a lot of fun!  

     

    She seemed a little under the weather on the evening but still perky, and after a night check on the horses, I came in to find her at the bottom of the budgies cage uncoordinated,    She sat very slumped in my hands for a few minutes then had what looked like a stroke and passed away a few moments later.    

     

    Though she wasn't a BL bird, I thought she deserved a mention,  she had a lovely few years, and her friends are missing her (as is my GCCC)

     

    The image uploader thing really doesn't like my pc,  as it doesn't offer the option to make links into images, i'll just post a link or two

    Sorry to hear your sad, sad news. D'ni was so lucky to have had such a lovely caring home for her brief little life.

    Fly free little D'ni. God bless you x
