My budgie died all of a sudden

What does it mean if my 4 to 5 year old male budgie all of a suddenly dies he looked to be in good shape so why would he die he had brother that they had been together there whole life PLEASE someone help me and also what do I do when it’s brother is stressing out


Hi Taleigha,

I’m very sorry to hear about your loss. Birds can seem to die suddenly, but often they have been sick and were hiding signs of illness. There is no way to know why without having a Vet examine the bird. As for the brother, talk to him and give him plenty of attention and support. He will need time to adjust to not having his brother around. He will adjust, however.

Take care,
