Are you kidding me?! How can this be happening to you? I'm so sorry. Do you know what was the matter with him?

I'm so sorry! What happened? I thought Moon had recovered from the foot problem.

I don't know what's wrong with me. I am cursed!!

He was fine at night and in the morning I went to check on them and I saw him there laying on his back. I held him and gave him head scratches.
This was the first death that did not involve a bloody bird. Everything seemed normal except for his noes, which was orange.

This was also the first grave I made.

Here are some photos of him. We had a great time with each other...

Oh I'm so sorry. I noticed he had nasal discharge, so something must have been off with him.

Nasal discharge? What is that? I got him from the flea market.

I noticed that everyday, his cere become more orange and orange. When I found him dead this morning, his cere was REALLY orange. There was no pink.

I'm going to miss him a lot. I was ready in a lot of pain yesterday because of Bio (probably because I heard a sad song that kinda related to me with Bio and when I thought of my birds that song popped in my head and set me off)

Also, my therapist said some touching things to me that made me emotional the whole day yesterday. I'm a wreak!

I am expecting my mother to tell me that she wants to get rid of my birds. Every time an accident happens, she wants to get rid of them! Why does she say this when I am already knocked down to the ground!

I feel so down, like Moons grave.

I'm so sorry that this has happening. I think the orange cere is from something he ate or got into. The feathers around his cere and beak are stained too, and the feathers on the edge of one wing look matted. Snowy looks kind of like this when she's been eating sprouts with red palm oil on them. Are these just food stains on Moon, or is it possible that he ate something toxic?

Nasal discharge would be something coming out of his nose. It's possible that this happened and he rubbed his beak on the edge of his wing. But it might be kind of hard for him to smear it up above his cere, so I think maybe something else happened here.

I don't know how he stains himself.
The stain on his wing was from a night fright. He is prone to them. Do you think he lost too much blood?

If he lost an excessive amount of blood he would have been very weak afterward, too weak to bother with trying to eat. If he was acting reasonably OK and eating, it wasn't a blood loss issue.

It didn't look like blood on his cere anyways. Did you notice any change in behavior? Did any of the birds start to pick on him? He could have just died from a cause we won't know, and that happens, but the runny cere seems to me that there was something more behind it.
