I'm new here (first post) and new to the budgie world as well.
So here is my budgie BlueO
He's been with me for couple of weeks now. Got him from a pet store. His head was bald when I got him, so I don't know how young he is. He is easy to tame in the evening but not at all in day time. He acts like he isn't the same guy from last evening! Initially he was reacting to call from wild Indian ring neck parrots from outside (I live in Bangalore, India), though now a days he doesn't do that often. When I talk to him, he opens his beak and imitates me (though no sound comes out). I'm yet to start training since I don't have anything to offer to him. Millet is already there in cage and he doesn't eat pallets, even after mixing with millet. I need to find something else he loves to start training.
Can someone figure out his age?
Also I realised after looking at other budgie pictures that he has very short tail. He flies without a problem but doesn't go very high (he goes upto 5ft). I hope it grows back (as told in other specific forum thread). Here is his picture where tail is visible:
