Ok so my experience has been a little bit different then the stories I have read on this board.
Many years back I was given budgies as pets by my parents or grandparents (can't remember exactly who) and I also remember that someone in the family
casually mentioned that birds shouldn't be kept as pets because it's bad luck. I was a kid in elementary and didn't really pay much attention to
They were my first pets. I can't remember exactly how long I had the birds before this incident happened, but it wasn't very long. I think it was
within the first year. We had a male and a female budgie.
My grandmother was very ill in the hospital from pancreatic infection from a previously missed stone. I had a dream about my birds. I don't remember
what it was but it was about them. Like they changed in size, they were huge or they did something. Just some odd dream about them. I mentioned it to
my dad the next day and a few days (I think) after that, the male budgie died. I found him lying in the cage. Me and brother were obviously very upset
and cried our eyes out. A few more days went by and my grandmother passed away.
I didn't really think much of it at the time until a couple of years later, it happened again. We had the female alone for the next couple years and
my grandfather started feeling sorry for the bird and asked us to get it a companion. So we went and got another male budgie. Again I had a dream
about the budgies and I told someone ( probably Dad). We used to hang the cage outside on the deck so they'd get fresh air and enjoy the view. I came
home from school, noticed that they had pushed out their water tray. I didn't know how long it had been like that and if they were thirsty so I
decided to get them down n fill up their trays. In the process I accidentally tipped the cage and the male flew out and female flew in. Look
everywhere couldn't find him. A few days later, my grandfather went to the hospital for a routine procedure cuz he has asthma and he passed away.
2 times was enough for me, I didn't want to test out the patterns. We did get another male bird and I did have dreams about them but I never
mentioned them to any1. I told mom n dad I wanted to get rid of the birds asap. We found some1 who'd take them. He ended up being arrested later for
apparentny selling illegal meat from unknown animals. It was all over the news. (No he didn't kill the budgies, they are way to small to sell for
I'll never keep birds as pets ever because of this even though I adore parrots. I don't want to know when someone will die. My brother brought home
an injured pigeon once and as much as I was sympathetic with the bird, I wanted it out. I found a sanctuary asap.
