My bird sitter kept my two green cheek conures for two time periods this summer, both about 10 days. They have always liked her. At the end of the second vacation (the day they were to be returned she called and told me that one of them was dead. They had been together their whole 4 years. A necroscopy showed the dead bird had stopped eating but the vet could not say why he stopped eating. His lungs were fine. I am concerned that these 2 vacations, which were close together just upset/depressed the bird that died.
Feel very guilty. Other bird has never shown any sign of grief. What do you think happened? Not sure we should get a second bird. Thank you so much.
