Hey, thought id share some pictures of my little friends, say hello

This is George - he joined us last week, hes about 4 months old



This is Bert - shes about 3 years old now, she stopped flying when she was a year old but is still a happy walker



This is Charlie - Hes about 2 and a half now and we gave him to a friend with a large outdoor aviary because he was too hyper for bert!



This lot are Bert and Charlies babies - all rehomed now and all very happy ��

Very cute birds! To me,George looks older than about four months because he already has white iris rings and absolutely no baby bars.

Thanks Nuxi ☺

In all honesty I agree he does look a bit older. The lady at the shop told me he was around 4 to 5 months old, and i questioned her on it but eventually took her word, dubiously. im glad someone else has the same opinion. So you think about 6 to 8 months maybe?

Your budgies are beautiful and their chicks are very cute and quite colourful!
I love the big ladder you made for your Bert.
If George's irises are clear white, then most likely he has reached adulthood, so he is either close or already reached the 1 year old mark. It's clear he has gone through his first moult and his cere has the mature royal blue colour.
If he has a leg band, you can see the year he has hatched and that can give you more clues about his age.

Thankyou Aluz.

I am actually starting to wonder if the lady in the shop either doesnt know her stuff or she just says whatever she wants to make the sale. This isnt the first time if doubted her and now others are confirming my doubts im actually quite annoyed. I will be going there tomorrow and will be having a word.

Another thing that she said, when i mentioned he was a fair bit bigger than the rest in the cage of around 20, was he is probably half exhibition budgie. Another piece of wrong information in my opinion.

That said, Im very happy with george even though hes older than i was told, hes gonna be loved just the same

You're welcome!
It's sadly true that some people will flat out lie just to make a sale.
However, I agree with the lady in one aspect though, it does seem that George has some English budgie genes on him (not sure if he is 100% English).
You can tell by the size of his throat spots as well as his head/face and overall build.

Hes definitely bigger than any of the other budgies ive had so i guess it may be the case.
By, the way, about the ladder, I'm thinking of making them to order and some other stuff too. Is there a good place here to post and see if anybody is interested?
