First touch by griffsnuff First touch by griffsnuff
I got a budgie on January the 30th 8D and today she stepped onto my hand to eat seeds I had my hand for around 30 minutes in the cage! wee im so happy!

Im pretty sure its a she from the pictures ive seen of young females. So for now I will call her a she xD Suppe works for both genders. (apparently all my animals are females lawl, not sure about the fish though)

Last night I bought some new toys for her and some important things that were lacking like a cuttlebone thingy. She is so much more active than she was when she came, its fun watching her play and have fun. Im supprised at how calm and not noisy she is. She usually chirps if I sing or talk, is quiet the whole night until I wake up in the morning and whistle to her. I guess Im more noisy than she is so I dont mind it xD. I also remove some of the new toys during the night time so there will be some change.

wooo obuuuurd buuuuuuuuurd suuuuuppppe biiird
here she is for those who havent seen her yet

Aaah my pop is a budgie breeder ovo
Wait until her nose changes to brown to know if shes female or not -v-

Males generally have blue/bluepink whereas babies still have a mixture uvu <3

From what I remember about budgies, once they reach adulthood, the color of the band across their nose is a good indication of gender. Fittingly, blue for blues. (And I believe it changes during maturation, so although it's blue now it could change later.)

I am so glad you got her a cuttlebone--my long-gone grandma had a parakeet, and she always had a cuttlebone in there--I worried 'cause none of the suggestions nor your comments mentioned one, that I saw, and I thought they were good for them. She also had a mirror toy in the cage--is that good for a budgie?

Why would mirrors be bad? My friend has a mirror in her budgie's cage and he loves being able to stare at himself.

(Super cute by the way. I remember when my birds first stepped onto my hand. ^^ )

Because they end up thinking its another budgie, atleast some does. And they are very affectionate birds and will try end up feeding the fake reflection and forget to eat themselves when they arent fed back. And budgies cant survive long without food.

Oh, I hadn't thought of that. I don't think it's a problem for her bird, but I'll make sure she's aware of it. Thanks~

xD petshop workers dont know all the things. This is why you buy your animals from breeders and not petstores. Many animals there are sick, excpecially fish and will die shortly after you buy them unless you know how to take good care of them and know what they need.

Oh gosh this bird must be making your other pets pretty jealous. XD

But I remember when my present bird let me hold her for the first time; I know how exciting it is. C:

as far as I know you can see their gender at their noses. if the skin on top of their beak at their nose is blue-ish it is a male, if it is pinkish-cream-beige tone it is a female.

yes unless they are very young its trickier. From the pictures ive seen of young females they look like they have blue ceres with white rings around the nostrils, something the males do not have at a young age.

i have kept many birds and 4 were budgies
(also zebra finches, foreign finches,parrots,canaries,quails,cockatiels,)
so i can say its starting to look girl-ish the white above the blue on the cere
but you 'll have to wait till she/he grows,
when it loves you enough scratch her ear parakeets love that, also the chirping will soon come :-x
also my sister budgie lusso (who lived alone) had a toy like this [link] and he loved it!!!
also get some grass or hay they love eating at that!
