    Arrow Aqua: Missed Budgie

    Hi everyone
    I thought I would let you all know that my beautiful, charming sky spangle/opaline budgie Aqua passed away today, at 7 years 3 days. I'm convinced Aqua died of old age, as that is old for a budgie. We found him on the aviary floor today, but he looks peaceful. He had sired 7 baby boys,the 5 oldest passed away last year at 6 years. He lives on in Specks and Jaykeskye, both with mature sons. He was a much loved Pure English budgie, who lived as a pet for 3 years, then moved into the aviary at 4. RIP Aqua.

    Awww, sorry for you're loss.He was very old though, and I hope you're not too upset by it. He has, after all, got two sons and two Grandsons, which he lived to see. most budgies don't get to see their descendants that far. There's also something to be said for his tremendous age for an English budgie - I mean wow!!! You are a fantastic bird owner!

    *Aqua lives on*

    Sorry to hear that Rex, it is very sad when you loose any pet after having it that long.

    I'm sorry, losing any pet is hard, especially when it's unexpected.

    Why are you trying to degrade someone elses loss?

    I don't think that's what she was trying to do, I just think she was trying to point out that the OP still does have something to remember Aqua by...his descendants. Could have worded it better, but I highly doubt she meant any harm.

    In any case, RIP Aqua. It sounds like you were truly loved and a good daddy.

    Mom to Ducky! (female cinnamon GCC)...THANK YOU Keet for the gorgeous sig!!
    Won't you come see me after 12am?

    I hardly think that was the intention. She was just trying to make Rex feel better.
