Male or female
Hi everyone. I’ve gotten a new budgie a fortnight ago. He/she is a Lutino named Alfie. I’ve just been assuming male as I’ve only had male birds in the past and there is a bluish tint, but Alfie is still very young and hasn’t yet matured. The reason I’m questioning is he has white around both nostrils which can look pinkish or violet depending on the day, and his behaviour is different to budgies I’ve had in the past. He is more territorial and doesn’t like to share food with Louie. If Louie is eating he’ll cone down and take over even if he’s just finished, also if Louie is playing with a toy he’ll come and take it off him. Louie just lets him which is unusual too. They do like each other and often share a perch or preen each other. Any advice will be appreciated.
