Hi All my baby boy (Turvy 12 wks) just died. He was fine at around 12noon. At 1.30 my husband came in to say something was wrong. He was sitting in his pen with his head on the side and his legs straight out the back. As I got there he bought up a small amount of green/brown gunk and just died. I can see nothing that could have happened to him. We don't use poisons or anything else around here. I'm worried about my two girls. Anyone got any ideas. Phalara

I am sorry that your baby died.You may never know it could have been something he ate, snake bite,I dont know where you are from maybe weather related,genetics in the parents.Without an autopsy all one can do is guess .I know this does not help much but sometimes they just die and there is nothing that could have been done to stop it as you say it was very quick.
Keep doing what you are doing.I am sure the rest will be fine

It sounds like he was a much loved boy who had a good (though short) life and didn't suffer long.

So sorry,

Cathy

Thanks Macl27, I live in NQ (Mackay) so it's fairly hot now. My husband suggested a snake, although we haven't seem any this summer yet. We d have toads but they usually don't come out during the day. Cheers Phalara

So sorry to hear about your bird. :(

Just a thought - be very careful of water containers uncovered overnight! I have to do a "toad check" each morning if I haven't emptied or covered the ducks baths and buckets the night before - well was last summer and must start again. :)
