    last night my blue parakeet Odie passed on. He started acting sick last night at about 10PM. I held him in my hands from 10 untill he passed on at 1:30AM. There was nothing that anybody could have done to save him. He died comfortably and surrounded by loved ones. He had a good life with his pal Ozzy (a white and grey parakeet). It was extremely hard on me becuase this is the first time I have ever seen anything die, let alone hold them in my hands while they pass. I just take comfort in knowing that Odie is comfortable and not suffering. Right before he passed he let out a really weak and soft chirp and wrapped his wing around my finger almost as if he was giving me a hug.
    Ozzy seems to miss Odie greatly.

    It is weird becuase the day before yesterday I bought an Albino Parakeet which is still in quarentine (new birds get quarentined for thirty days before joining the rest of the flock) I still havent come up with a name for the new guy. I was going to name him Ollie to match Odie and Ozzy, but now I just don't know. My second choice for a name was Gizmo.

    I am sorry if this doesnt belong here, if it doesnt please move it to the appropriate place.

    i have had some special parakeets in the past, one in particular. I also know how impacting seeing something die for the first time too. All the beauty is there and all the beauty is gone too. I am sorry for your loss. I hope the days pass quickly for your bird will need company soon.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Odie. What a special boy he was. I think the name Ollie would be perfect for your new addition.
