Why did my 5yr old budge fall of his perch and die


Hi Cathy,

I’m sorry about your little budgie. Birds will try to hide signs of illness, so possibly he has been sick and you didn’t realize he was sick. Sudden death is usually caused by a toxin in the air. Any type of fume or smoke can kill a bird. This could be some cookware, cleaning products, candles, air fresheners or a number of other things,

Take Care,
