Is my albino budgie a baby or just very small?
Some friends found an albino budgie in the bushes outside a couple weeks ago. They placed some ads, but no owner came forward, so they gave the budgie to me last night. The budgie has a bluish pinkish cere, and I think it's a boy, but I can't be sure. He's very docile. He's all white with red eyes.
He's very small, and when I first saw him, I immediately thought he was a baby. But now I'm wondering if he's just very small. He's smaller than the average non-albino budgie but seems quite healthy other than that.
I am not familiar with albino budgies. Do they tend to be unusually small?
He does have a silver leg band, and maybe that will give a clue as to his age, but I haven't been able to take a close look at it yet.
