I have a very Sad update

Baby number 5 (the white face pearl) died this morning at 11 A.M

we went to clean the nest box, and he/she was weak but the crop looked full, but didn't feel very full, So I got him/her out and decided to hand feed it. but it was too late, it died within a few mins. later


but i do have a question - is it normal for everything in their crop to come out after they die? i had one hand under him/her and i felt something slimy and when i lifted it's head there was liquid slimy stuff oozing out (even kinda bubbly) and then it's entire crop/chest went completely flat I had him/her on paper towels ( i have the kind you can rip differnt sizes off, i had 3 sheets folded in half and it soaked all the way through onto my hand and leg) - the reason I ask is because the lovebird i had with Roxy when he died this didn't happen with him, he just took his last breath and that was the end of it.

me and the kids just got done burying him/her out under the tree with Lily and Mickey

They are gorgeous babies. So sad to hear about the little one that didn't make it though. The only thing I can think of is that when he died, all his muscles obviously relaxed and maybe there was air in his crop, so muscles relaxing + air it might have pushed it all out. I can't think of any other explanation.

Thank you , i was a loss of why it did it, since i've only had one other baby die on me (i've had others but they were already gone when i checked the nest box) i just couldn't figure out a reason

I was assuming it's like when a human dies and they loose control of all their bodily functions, only nothing came out the back end.

Aww, i'm sorry to hear about the littlest baby. :( It sounds like it had a crop infection, i've heard tiels are particularly prone to them.

The photos are adorable! :love: I want that WF cinny pearl.
