Little one is doing very well, the budgie parents diligently stuff this one with food all the time! I think this is a girl but until 'she' colours up some more I can't be certain. If this is a girl, she will likely be yellow, cinnamon & opaline - there is a little yellow on the head and rump which is why I think this may be a girl.
She died this afternoon sometime between 3-4.30pm (4-2.5hrs ago)
I had pulled her on Sunday as the adoptive parents just weren't feeding her and one of them had started plucking her.
By Sunday evening she was flapping after her food:
I think she may have died of sour crop. I was sure I felt some food still in there this morning before leaving for work. She was very tired and I didn't want to force her so mum tried to give her a feed around 10am but said she wasn't really interested and she just went downhill from there.
I blame myself as I gave her a name last night because we were all convinced she was going to make it.
