Two Keets Died TogetherUser Question
how is it possible that 2 of my keets have died in the same day? everything was normal today. i let them fly inside the house and i put them back. later around dinner time, i found 1 dead. a few hours later, the other one had died. i think they ate rice but that shouldn't have done anything to them. what do you suppose happened to them. please help so i don't repeat this mistake again.
I really don't think it was the rice, keets eat rice and grain all the time. But if you were cooking, were you using teflon pans? Those give off dangerous fumes that are bad for living creatures. Parakeets, having smaller bodies, die more quickly from those sorts of things than us larger creatures do. Sort of the whole canary-in-a-coal-mine issue. Other cleaning solvents can also kill parakeets, including cleaning the oven. I would look seriously at what you were doing that day that might have put any chemicals in the air.
