It probably was canker. Treat all your birds for Canker. Canker manifests in different ways...yellow blotches in the throat and mouth are just one of the ways. Most folks don't know that and so they don't treat for canker because they can't see it.

It can be adenovirus or aspergillosis too. Both of these diseases can cause sudden death without other symptoms.

You'll want to put 1-2 tablespoons of ACV in one gallon of water. I'm not sure how often people give it to their birds. The acidity of ACV promotes healthy flora in the gut.

Acv makes the gut flora more acid. The bad bacterias can't live in an acid environment. Some put 2 Tab to the gallon of water, but some birds won't drink it that strong. Some will. Some put 1 Tablespoon to a gallon of water and the birds don't seem to mind it as much. If they will drink that amount, you could try 1 1/2 Tab. until you see what they will do. 2 or three times a week usually. I use the lesser amount, and they don't seem to mind at all.
