    Unhappy My 4 Babies Died Suddenly

    Saturday evening at 11:30 pm my beloved tiel Homer developed labored breathing and died in my arms with no indication of anything wrong (30 minutes before he was his happy self). Thinking it was some weird thing that happened we said our goodbyes and buried him the yard. We then put the other three tiels we have in their cage (which included his mate) and went to bed. 3 hours later they were all dead. We have no idea what happened and even had PG&E out to test for bad fumes or a gas leak but nothing. Now I am beside myself because we spoiled the four of them rotten and they didn't deserve to die. Our oldest, the first one we got his name was Peanut and he was so in love with my husband he called him "Daddy".

    RIP Homer (J. Simpson), Chicken (his mate), Cecil, and Peanut

    I'm so sorry for your loss. If it is any comfort, I know part of what you are going through. I know that I have written this before, but...my tiel, Dot, she died the same way as Homer. She was fine and then all of a sudden she started acting funny and within an hour she had died in my hands on the way to the animal hospital - she was only 2. I still don't know what happened to cause it. And I am still destroyed over it. I wish I could fix it for you so that you have your babies back - but all I can say is that you aren't alone and you gave them so much love that their lives, even if cut short, were fabulous, I'm sure. Remember the good times and know we are all here for you.

    I am so sorry to hear about your babies. I hope you find the reason for their deaths. I can not even imagine what you may be going through. I offer you and your family my condolences!

    Re: My 4 Babies Died Suddenly

    Oh my...I'm sorry. Hugs to you. I recently lost two budgies and it was extremely painful. We still aren't completely over the loss and I still tear up in the quieter moments when I remember them. I sincerely hope that someone can help you come to a conclusion as to why your beloved feathered friends passed away...

    They're in a better place now, remember that. They were loved a lot more than some birds, and all that matters is that they had a good life.
    If you don't think that's cute, you are one sad person.

    oh, i am so sorry. something must be very wrong for all 4 to go like that. keep looking- it is most likely not very healthy for you, either.

    i cannot imagine the loss. hugs for you.
