I'm so very sad to say that my precious
Cutes (the blue one) was not a healthy bird.
I noticed that she tended to pluck her
feathers out, breathe with her mouth open,
and not like to hop around.
Today I noticed she had a red and puffy eye
and that she was itching it against the perch.
I called the vet and he said it sounds like she
had a respiratory infection and needed to be treated.
MY POOR BABY!!!
I don't have the money to take her to the vet,
so I had to exchange her for another parakeet.
(Thankfully there's a 7 day warranty on them.)
I felt so bad and sad giving her back and
knowing that she's suffering. :( :(
Now that I've been able to read about how to tell
if a parakeet is healthy or not,
I chose a (hopefully) healthy new one.
I was going to name her Cutes in honor of the last one,
but she looked like something different...
I love her white colors!
So I took to naming her Fluff.
So now I own Fluff and Puff.
Fluff is still a bit shy in her new home,
but is a great singer and loves Puff!
Puff is still as lively as ever.
He's such a singer too!
