    Why did you give him the morphine? I am sorry he has died. Birds should never be given any drugs whatsoever, without first taking the bird to an experienced avian vet, or, if there is not one in your area, then to a regular vet!

    Fly high and free sweet budgie! Over the rainbow bridge!

    Persona!ly, I feel whatever he was treated with for his vet visit should have been the only medication used. Morphine is very strong medication for a bird, and I suspect he died from it.
