I just joined this forum in the hopes of getting some info. I woke up this morning to find our little Sunny passed away on the floor of the cage. We have three parakeets (well, sadly only two now). I believe two were females (Sunny included) and one is a male. Yesterday, we didn't do anything out of the ordinary and the birds played happily and noisily in their cage all day. This morning Sunny was at the bottom of the cage with her stomach down and wings out a bit. Her head looked like it was a little crooked. She isn't the best flier and I was wondering if anyone ever experienced a parakeet dying by breaking its neck. Also, we had just cleaned out the cage the day before yesterday and the birds really seemed happier and healthier than ever. We are not going to get a necropsy as we have already buried her in a very nice place and I'm not really sure what that would show anyway. Any insight would be appreciated.
We miss you Sunny!
