    Hi, Everyone.

    It's been a while since I've been here, so here is what my flock looks like at the moment : 19 Normal Budgies 8 Show Budgies 6 Chinese Painted Quails 5 Laughing Doves 3 Rain Quails 2 Diamond Doves 2 Geese 1 Lovebird 1 Indian Ringneck ps. Hi Adam,Bea and Nerwen.
  3. My innermost sympathy, budgieteen. It's hard losing one of the family. But I'm sure Baby, Little One, their brother, Lute their mother and Gundam will be waiting for Jet in heaven. He won't be lonely, but we'l still be sad.

    Help!

    Lost my Lutino (she might have been a doble factor spangle, because she gave me one spangle baby in each of her two clutches) today. The vet did an autopsy and we found that she died of internal bleeding. But we also found that she had roundworms which the vet said might have been why my other birds (3 young ones and Gundam my four year old) died. So I'm deworming all my birds, my family and warned all those who were in contact with my birds to get dewormed. The vet also recommended that I bring my dominant pied male in seeing as he can't fly only flop and we are scared that he might get hurt.

    Help!

    Been having sleepless nights, checking up on the birds every few hours. None of the others seem sick but I keep a sharp eye on them. Hopefully none of them are sick and the antibiotic is helping. I'll give you all another status report if something happens. Daz - I know for a fact we haven't been spraying any poisons (I don't come near any poisons or even perfume for that matter because of my asthma, one whiff and I get an attack), but I'll check with the neighbor's.

    Help!

    Little one passed away no less than 5 minutes ago. None of the others seem sick, but I'll be keeping a watchfull eye on them. I've given them the antibiotic and the seem to be drinking it. Hopefully it works and no more will die, tearing my heart assunder.

    Help!

    No vets are open on Sundays so I got it from the pet shop.

    Help!

    Just got back going to give them the antibiotic (Doxybiotic). They also gave me a disinfectant (Virkon S) can anyone tell me if it is good and safe to use?

    Help!

    Little one is sitting on the floor with head on floor and bottom in the air. Not cheeping anymore. Breathing still sounding laboured.

    Help!

    He just pooped on my hand and his stool is watery white with yellow dot in middle. Definately not a good sign.

    Help!

    Just found another little one on the floor of the aviary. Keeps making short cheeping sounds. When breething you can hear a popping? liquid? sound almost like a blocked? runny? nose. Doesn't make an effort to fly or anything, just sits on my hand crying.

    Help!

    I spoke to our preacher (also a birdlover) and he told me to go and get some antibiotics (Doxybiotic to be precise), which I'll be doing tomorrow morning as soon as the shops open. I'll be having a sleepless night as I'll be checking my aviaries every few hours. Thanks for everybodies understanding, support and help.

    Help!

    Gundam just died in my arms, so far I've lost my two youngest show budgies and my oldest normal budgie. There was a ladder that started rusting in the show budgie aviary(which I removed as soon as I saw the rust), but not in the normal budgie aviary. I introduced new birds into the normal budgie aviary about two weeks ago (after quarantine). I've quarantined my lutino (because she was just sitting on the floor) and my sky blue opaline (bleeding forehead). And moved my one female known to biting to another part of the aviary.
  14. lost 2 of my show budgies this morning, 1 of my normal budgies seriosly ill. Fed them the usual food nothing new. Gundam seems to be having seizures, laboured breathing and shivering. Earliest I can get them to a vet or get a vet here is monday. Any help will be appreciated.
