Hello everyone! I've been gone for quite a while dealing with health issues. I downsized my flock quite a bit and am down to 6 budgies now. If I've uploaded the photos properly, from left to right they are:
Pita - yellow series lacewing hen

Rainbow - YF1 sky blue dominant pied hen

Featherwings (can you tell he was named by a 6 year old? LOL) - YF2 opaline sky blue recessive pied greywing male

Hagrid - light green split to lacewing (and maybe opaline) male

The last photo are my two new ones. Madame Maxime is the grey green hen and the opaline grey male has no name yet (I'm open to suggestions!). They are about 6 months old and the others are all three. I hand fed the first four. The two smaller ones were babies I raised and sold to a woman as babies. In January I happened to see them listed on Craigslist and called the owner immediately and requested they be given back to me and told her I would even pay her rehoming fee. I'm so glad I happened to see them. The greys will be paired with Pita and Hagrid next year for babies.
It's good to be back!

These pics are right after I weighed them, did nails, trimmed vent feathers and had their yearly vet visit and were misted down with water, btw. So that's why they look angry and wet - because they were!

Hello Erin and welcome back to the forums!
It's great to have you back, your little flock of cuties is beautiful.
I'm glad you were able to adopt your previous chicks, too. Good luck with your future breeding plans!

EDIT: Since you have a Madame Maxime, maybe your budgie boy could be a "Monsieur Poirot" (as in Hercule Poirot).

Madame Maxime is from Harry Potter. Went with that because I want to pair her with Hagrid later. I like Monsieur Poirot! That's definitely a strong possibility! Thanks!

You're welcome! I thought of it because your budgie girl's name looked French to me and it could be fun to have a Madame and a Monsieur budgie.
And since Poirot used to wear clothes in grey tones, I thought it could suit your boy.

I love the Harry Potter names! And even grumpy and wet you have some stunning birds.

Welcome back!

Your birds are beautiful I love the Harry Potter names
What about Dobby? I also think he looks like a Sir Edgar or Winchester, something distinguished

Thanks, everyone. I'm saving Dobby (and Kreacher) for the day that I own a hairless pet. Ha ha!

Hello Erin, I hope you are feeling better health wise. Your little flock are gorgeous, a lot of scope for some lovely chicks later on no doubt. I am so happy you managed to get your babies back, that is one reason I will not get any hens and be tempted to breed I could never have them leave as I would be too worried about them
