Contaminated bird seed in Canberra?

By Kalfour - 1 October 2013 0

Have any bird owners had their birds die unexpectedly in recent months? Possibly after buying a new bag of seed?

One of my cockatiels died recently. The vet suspected that it might be metal poisoning, or that it might be contaminated seed, as I had recently purchased a different brand.

Apparently there had been a similar case at the vet not long beforehand, and that bird had just started a new type of seed too.

There have been no cases at that vet since, but I imagine a lot of bird owners don’t take them to the vet.

Has anyone else had a bird die unexpectedly recently? If so, what brand of seed had they been eating?

What’s Your opinion?
