Default Meet Georgie

Hi. This is my first post and I'm excited to introduce Georgie, who I brought home two days ago. I'm not sure how old he is, but he's suppose to between 4-8 months old. I was told it would take a month or more to train him, but in two days he learned "step up", sits on my shoulder, and gives kisses. I do believe someone at the pet store must have hand tamed him as he's so comfortable right from the start. This is Georgie. If anyone could tell me what type of budgie he is and how old he looks, I'd so appreciate it. I'm thinking he's older than what the pet shop told me. His cere is very blue, so I believe he's a boy.

He is stunning. A yellowface type 2 dominant pied cobalt.

He has had his adult moult so it is hard to judge age. I would say closer 8 to 12 months. but it is great that he wants to interact with you.

Thank you so much for letting me know! I figured he was older than 4 months. Do you think he's a boy? I'm just learning and I am going by the color of his cere which was the darkest of all his bird mates. A person who brought their budgie home called the pet store to let them know their boy laid an egg! lol

Definitely a boy, his cere is the adult dark blue. The big moult into adult feathers normally starts around 4 to 6 months and last a few weeks.

It is a common mistake with pet stores to sell young hens as males.

Again, thank you. I so wanted a boy, but would have been happy with a girl.
Sad to think he had been at the pet store for so long. He'll be spoiled now.

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
