Parakeets Dead

I purchased a parakeet on Saturday. Everything was fine until Monday when she suddenly died. We went back to the store, got our money back and purchased another one. The second parakeet was much more active and lively so we assumed that the first was sick when we got her. Today, Thursday, our second parakeet has died. Seems to be a 3 day patern going on here. I will be taking this one back for a refund and will not be purchasing a Petco bird again -- FYI I have owned birds for over 30 years so I am not a novice.

We're sorry to hear of your losses, Beto. Can you please email us at PTPsupport@petco.com with the store location so we can have our team look into this as well? Thank you.
