Thanks jeraco77...I read your story and am glad your Sweetie made it!
Miss Darcy is still seeming okay...I went out and got her a new hanging toy, some tropical fruit stick thing and a bunch of carrots. She's never had carrots before, so we'll see.
I probably spoiled them.
They LOVED millet, and I used to limit it to one spray a week, but then I started giving it to them more often, though I hadn't put much in lately. But they were just deliriously happy whenever they had it. I did read it could make them fat, but only Duff was looking fat. When my mom pulled him out of the cage (I was too sad to do it), she said he felt like just feathers and bones and she was surprised because of how much he ate. Which makes me think he did have some liver issue.
Does it mean anything that he didn't sing or make noises other than a high pitched squeak? It was very annoying at the time, but it would be music to my ears right now.
It could very well have been vomit on his head and not water. We saw him like that around 3am. He had been acting fine that day, he would sleep a lot but he and Darcy were still carrying on. It was a shock that he had already died by the time my mom got up.
I am wondering if Miss Darcy might be a Mr., though. Neither one ever laid eggs and they were never frisky with each other. The vet said she was a she, but there is a faint bit of blue on the cere. Not like with McDuff's, his was VERY blue, but now I am wondering about Darcy. Her name WAS Mr. Darcy, we thought we had two boys originally but the vet said no.
Are blue keets weaker than green keets by any chance? More susceptible to ailments?
We buried Duffy in our little pet cemetary...one dog, one cat, and now one bird.
