Default Pickles Needs Vibes and Prayers

This morning DH went to feed the birds and one of our white wings, Kiwi, was dead on the bottom of the cage. Her sister Pickles was obviously quite ill. I rushed her to the vet and they put her in a heated cage, gave her fluids and a feeding directly into her croup and they are going to do blood work as soon as they think she can handle the blood draw. Pickles is underweight and the vet said that the inside of her mouth is moist, which is unusual for a bird so they are thinking maybe an upper respiratory infection. The other two birds, who are in seperately cages, seem fine but it's hard to tell with birds so we may have to bring them in to be checks out as well.

I'm so upset and worried sick. I was in tears when I called my boss this morning to call off. Pickles could really use all the prayers and good vibes you guys could possibly spare....
