Tough Day @ Wattle Flights

Recommended Posts

I came home today, went out to spray water and cool down the birds in the aviary, and noticed that two birds had not survived the day.

 

I lost a Light Green opaline Dommie Pied/Lutino Cock. He was an 06 bird that Kaz had gifted me and he was lovely. I have a daughter of his and she gets better looking every day. It is such a shame. He his his illness well but when I found him he had a pooey vent.

 

The cock bird is at the back - I lost this hen in the nestbox eggbound.

The other bird I lost hurts a lot as it was Kiwi. Kiwi was a 2007 Grey Cinnamon Wing Dommie Pied Hen. She was called Kiwi as when I went to Perth in January 2009 she has broken her leg and so she went and lived with my mother. Mum took great care of her. I named her Kiwi as what else do you call a medium sized brown flightless bird? Kiwi had 5 daughters with Twitch and I still have 4 of them. Losing Kiwi is very sad as there is that attachment, she is a hen and she was in good condition. No sign of any illness, no pooey vent, feathers in good condition, good weight. From where she is laying, it looks like she might have had a night fright, flew into the wire and broken her neck. Very sad. My mother is going to be devastated as afer looking after Kiwi for so long, she thinks of her as her bird.

Sorry to hear about your loss Dave, 2 birds in one day sucks. t's good you have young from them.

I had a couple die earlier in the year on different days and they were my top birds, found them on the floor of the aviary and today this day I have no idea why, they looked healthy before hand and when I found them they had not lost any weight and they didn't have pooey bums, they just died.

I guess you always feel something for your birds when you find one gone, but it is always a bit more when there is an attachment and its "someone" special. So sorry for your losses Dave. I felt the sadness through your post and send my sympathy :(
