I was given two lovebirds a six months ago, but sadly one has died overnight. The lady who gave them to me, said the birds were a few years old. Although she could not remember due to memory loss.
I have other birds (Indian ring necks, Budgies and Cockatiels) in a very large octagonal aviary 30m in diameter and at its peak 5m in height. The locals in my home town call it the (“Aviary Mahal”). The aviary itself had four extensions legs built off the flats 3m x 3m one of which I sectioned of for the lovebirds.
The other birds are well and are looked after like they are in a five star hotel, and the aviary is rodent and pesticide free.
I do not know, if it was a male or a female bird that died, as I could not tell them apart.
The only sign the bird showed was the day before it was sitting on the bottom of the aviary.
Although, I did notice its wing drooped a bit and had greyish hue to the feather around the eyes.
The remaining bird is ok so to speak, but what do I do now? Why would it have died?
Any assistance you could provide will, be appreciated
