Cool Finally got some bonding with my Budgie Coco!





Finally had some bonding time with Coco! He got out of his cage, flew around (a few people suggested I just let him fly around in my room lol so I did ) He flew and flew, and walked, untill he gets into my closet, then he just stays there, apperntly he loves to hang and train there ahahah (I watched him ofcourse ) so I tried to pet him, he let me, although he nibbeled a few times, its fine, he wasnt biting as much, then he went on my finger and he let me pet him on my finger, and he let me move him around, like, he stays on my finger while I moved, it was pretty cool I'd say there was a lot of progress today, in trust, training, bondage etc. Looking forward to continue training with coco this week,

I'm glad the training session went well, keep it up and soon you'll be best buddies!

By the way, what colour is Coco's cere? I know the lighting isn't perfect in those pics, but the cere looks very whitish to me, making Coco a young budgie girl.
Recessive pied boys have an overall deep pinkish coloured cere.

Well done! Good for you! Going at Coco's pace will pay off big time in the end.

Aluz, it seems as if he is indeed a male, because aorund his cheek area it is red, and on his nostrils, it is mainly white currently but at the bottom you can see a blue forming already .

Red? Budgies don't have red feathers on their cheeks, nor in any place. And gender is determined by the cere colour. The cere is the upper part of beak where the nostrils are.
From your description it does seem to me you have a young budgie girl, because the ceres of young females are whitish mingled with some very faint powdery blue colour on the edges. As they get older, the white takes over and when closing to maturity, the ceres will progressively get tan till they reach a dark brown colour when in breeding condition.
And since your budgie is a recessive pied, if it were a boy the cere should be a deep pinkish colour. Male budgies of this particular colour mutation never get the mature royal blue colour, the ceres stay pinkish coloured throughout their lives.

White nostrils with a hint of blue sounds very much like a girl to me too!

Red? LOL sorry BLUE, well not around the cheeks but you get the point, and I'm not sure the store said he/she is most probably a boy? ? Maybe Ill wait a few more months untill a better and clear color forms, then i will create a topic to double-check its gender
