    Question Scared to Death

    Hello everybody. I'm new to this list and I'm very impressed with the wealth of information available for new bird owners. I have a question that I have not been able to find an answer to yet.
    What is the risk of a budgie being scared to death by a barking dog? I heard from a friend that her mom has lost a couple birds due to the family dog starting to bark at something outside and scring the bird to death.

    Any ideas or thoughts on this would be very helpful.

    corey : my opinion, not much chance of a bird dying just by hearing a dog bark... but hearing a bog bark and getting scared and flying into something and breaking it's neck, now that is possible.
    but you mentioned it was the family dog, so one would think the bird would be used to the sound of the dog barking..

    Some birds it will have no affect on, especially if they get used to hearing it. Others will flip and start flying around the cage. It just depends on the bird.

    ^ I've had a budgie die from being scared and breaking his neck. (not from a dog though)
