Not Entirely. We think that he may have had some kinda internal damage done by the new batch of grit I gave the birds. He was the only one who took any interest in it...right afterwards he began to sleep for longer and longer periods...over the course of a week he stopped singing...and thats what alerted me to the problem, I debated a trip to the vets last week, but he showed no other symptoms, he still could fly, perch, keep his ballence, eat, drink, and no problems indicated by his droppings. But during Holy Week he went down hill very quickly. I knew the night before he died he would probably not make it to easter.

I had an emergency appointment with the vets ready for Saturday afternoon...but he died late the night before. I was holding him when he died
