I know just how you feel, I too had a special friend, a bond like no other animal before or untill now, her name was peaches, a young galah, she died on Christmas morning she will never be forgotten or replaced, I'm so sorry for your loss. It's just not fairI'm so unlucky that if I was to fall into a barrel of nipples I'd come out sucking my thumb. - Freddie Starr

got up today and forgot she wasn't their, she was only nearly 2 years old. poor ecko is so lost. for his sake i will get another but it will never be the same.
ecko has always been really quiet and i can barley get a hello out of him but today he is screaming, i think he is calling her. has anyone ever had this happen? were one bird dies and the other starts screaming for them.

I'm sorry for your loss
I don't know much about birds, but animals do grieve, so it wouldn't surprise me.

yeah smart birds like eckys do bond and he would be upset too.
That is really sad. Was she deformed in any other way than the leg? Dying at 2 is obviously cause for concern. Hope your other fella will be ok and there was no infectious disease at play X

she looked absolutly healthy the day before, i cut up carrots and cucumber and hand fed her she ate like normal and was talking to me. next day she was gone. i have other birds none are sick. she only had a deformed leg which was never a problem i treated her like the rest as she was too independent. she could climb just slower than other birds and could fligh fly normaly. i am starting to think now that their might have been something else wrong internaly.

im not sure exactly how long but i know magpies travel around in pairs and if one dies the other will grieve for days by its side..

Sorry for your loss, I understand how devastating it is
It might be worth taking her to the vets for a necropsy to rule out any potential problems for your other birds.

Anyway, to answer your question, yes I've seen that before. A couple months ago I lost my Bailey (Pearly Conure). He died 2 days before his 1st birthday, cause unknown. Was a complete and utter shock. He was acting like his regular clownish self and eating like a maniac as usual, and the next day he was gone just like that. For weeks after he died, Shiloh (my Quaker) spent most of the day calling out for him. She also effectively stopped eating, which was a real scare for me, because she was never weaned properly when the breeder sent her to me and it took me months getting her to eat properly and put on a little weight when she was a bub. She's much better now though, but being the intelligent animals parrots are, I'm sure she still misses him. I know I do..
Lots of e-hugs!
