Unfortunatly Easter Sunday was a sad day for us! Our African Grey Family parrot died suddenly with no signs of illness! Which was complete shock to the whole family!
There are two African greys in the same cage Shaku (15 years female, died) and
Raja (5 years male, still with us). Shaku loved my mum to bits and adored her Mum could do anything with her, however she was off with most of the Family members but some of us could handle her anyway! Yesterday my Mum Sat down to relax after cooking noticed that Shaku had fallen of her perch and was feet up on the bottom of the cage! After she realised that she wasnt moving or climbing back up the cage there was something very wrong! Mum went over to the cage saw she was breathing heavily and maybe hot and take her into a cooler room, but Shakus breathing still wouldnt stop panting! She tried to feed it water didnt drink! Also put it on table she was walking in a very drowsy way! My mum was obviously worried and held her open in her hands as she slowly began to stop moving! My father was desperatly trying to get hold of Vet! But in a few Minutes Shaku turned her head to the side wilst in my Mums open hands Squarked 3 times Spine Chillingly and past away!
This is a massive shock to the family! The parrot was showing she was fine strong in morning! Then in evening struggling to stay alive and died in 5 minutes! Obviously this is a tough time for all of us so no Autopsy will be done! However trying to get closure on issue! Just trying to think how she died that suddenly!
1. If Shaku died from Tefal poisoning then wouldnt have the other parrot Raja have the same symptoms and Dies too?
2. She had a heart Attack
3. Fell on bottom of Cage paniced and Gave herself a heart attack!
4. Had a stroke?
5. Poisoned from inside from one of the cage toys?
Obviously its a worry because we still have a Grey alive and dont want the same fate for him too!!!
