This is our lil guy. We got him in February and of course he was a little timid. He has now gotten use to us a bit and loves it when I take his cage outside on nice days and spray him with a water bottle to bathe. He still won't come to our hand but that will come with time. Although the one thing he WILL come to our hand for is dandelion greens. He LOVES them. It is like chocolate to him. LOL We have completely fallen in love with him and wouldn't know what we would do if we lost him. I have two girls, 9 and 6, and they talk to him everyday and say good night to him every night. He is our baby....
Buddy is a cutie! I agree that Buddy looks like a little female budgie.
It is a common misconception that any blue on the cere means the budgie is a male.
In some budgie mutations, the females cere is very pale blue with white rings around the nares (nostrils).
I think the very best advice anyone can offer is for you to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.
