Pickles is still very ill but still alive. Yoda got a clean bill of health, and they don't think it's worth the stress it will cause Solo to bring him in at this point since Yoda is fine. The vet thinks it may be some sort of toxin exposure but they really don't know what's wrong. At this point I'm going to be tossing every item that was in that cage and I'm pretty positive I'm taking the cage to the scrap yard in case there was some item with heavy metal in there they were exposed to.

I'm sorry. I REALLY REALLY hope she pulls through for you!!!!! I haven't posted anything but I've been reading your thread. I just didn't know what to say, but I really hope they find out what is wrong with her and she's on the mend quickly.

Oh I'm so sorry . You know I have one too, they are the best little birds. Vibes and well wishes for Pickles!

Are they eating different food than Yoda and Solo? Any chance of mold or anything like that in the food or cage? Their bedding? It must be a toxin if it affected both of them at the same time like that .

Actually yes, Pickles and Kiwi are on Harrison's and Yoda and Solo are on Zupreem. I'll say something to the vet about it.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

If you think it might be heavy metal poisoning, switch the bottom of the cage liner with white paper or paper towels and watch their droppings. Heavy metal poisoning alters the color of their droppings. I think it turns it reddish or orange.

I hope that Pickles pulls through for you!!

Pickles made it through the night and the vet says is more alert today. Definitely not out of the woods, but improved.
