New fledgelings
3 Attachment(s)
Got 4 super budgies now fledged and living independently of their parents. I have a friend who wants a pair of babies, not to breed, purely companion pets. I just donít know which I which . Two are clearly the same of whichever they are, hence only photos of 3 of them. Can anyone of you super experts out there tell me which one, if any, is a little girl please. I change my opinion daily, n other words, I just donít have your knowledge. Much appreciated. Thankyou x

Iím not sure. White nostrils but pinky hues. How old are they? It might be easier to judge in a week or two.
Why does your friend want a mixed pair? Does she realise that two males can be just as happy together as a mixed sex pair? - There would be no issues of unwanted breeding to deal with, which being siblings, she would certainly need to ensure didnít occur.

Were the pictures taken with flash?

Flash photos wash out the coloration of the cere making it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to determine a budgie's gender.

For best results, please take pictures in natural light; no flash and no direct sunlight.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them! ;)

I agree, photos should be taken without flash and in natural light. From the picture you posted, however, the first one is a girl and the other two are boys.

What's on the last budgie's beak?

As said above, pics taken in natural lighting is always best. However, based on these pics, I agree with StarlingWings.

Also, as mentioned, if your friend takes a mixed pair, they would have the added responsibility of making sure to keep the pair from breeding. This is especially important as they are siblings. Two males are often kept together, and can be just as friendly with each other if not more so.
