I think my piggie gave up on living

Hi Everyone,

Girlie lost her best friend and mate 6 weeks ago and I think she has given up on life without him. I thought she was coping ok, but she has been gone for a few days, I know this does happen but I have a strange feeling. Can a pigeon give up on life when loosing it's mate? Pixie, my other female lost Sam a few months ago and she seems ok, but she is trying to bump off the partner of a male she has been having a fling with.
I am feeling very sad at the moment and would love some insight into this area of their lives.

If her mate died of an illness, she could have it also and be very sick. How did their mates die?
You said she has been gone for a couple of days. Maybe she found a new mate. She might surprise you and show up with her new guy in tow. Don't give up on her so soon. I hope she returns home soon.
I dont think her mate was sick, he was full of life when I last saw him. I was thinking that maybe it was a cat or falcon, it just seemed so sudden; I think I can tell when they are a little sick, but I guess you never really know.

Iwerden, I hope you are right and she is going to surprise me with another mate!
If the new mate doesn't arrive I would advise that you get her another mate
they can go off for a few days,some of ours regularly take off,and yes they do sometimes do come back with a new friend,so dont give up on her.one of ours has 2 boyfriends,her original mate(forcepoo)and her new one(pizza) and she still has both hanging round,so she may have just been seeking a new mate
Thanks everyone, I'll keep my hopes high.
