Default My first pet!

Well, I'm 19, but it's never too late to get your first pet. I bought my budgie, Alan, exactly 5 months ago now. Most people laugh at such a normal name for a budgie, but I don't think he has a problem with it lol. I bought him from a local pet shop, who said he was about 4 months old at the time, since then I've managed to tame him which I'm pretty proud about, considering he's my first pet
This is my first post, so just thought I'd introduce Alan!

Alan is a real cutie!!
Congratulations on both having your very first pet (a gorgeous budgie no less!) as well as success in taming him.
From the pictures it appears the two of you have already developed a strong bond.

Really? The pet shop assured me he was the only male they had :/ But then I'd easily assume most on this forum know better than I or the workers at my local petshop lol.
Do you really think he/she's a girl? lol, I'll have to change the name

You wouldn't be the first or the last to get that advice from a pet shop.

Young male Budgies have purple or pink ceres that eventually change to royal blue.

Young female Budgies have white ceres with pale blue edges that eventually turn brown when they come into breeding condition and then possibly back to white/pale blue when they are out of condition.

EDIT: The cere is the part around her nostrils in case you didn't know
