This is Sunset(yellow) and Sky(blue) my little budgies! I got them from Petsmart. I'm trying to tame them but it's a process. I got them on Sept 8 2018. I love them so much!
I let them fly free and they have two cages. One with all the toys and one just to sleep.

I have questions if anyone can help. I'm pretty sure Sky is a boy and that Sunset is a girl but can anyone confirm this for me? Also is Sunset a rainbow budgie with more yellow that the rest of the colors?

Even though I can't hug and kiss them I still love them lol. I thought Sky would be more willing to trust me since he's a boy but Sunset shows interest in me she even perched on my hand for millet but Sky was trying to join yet got so freaked out that he scared Sunset now she will only eat the millet from my hand but won't perch.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Sunset is a female and Skye is a male.
As you have a mixed gender pair, it is important you do everything necessary to prevent breeding.

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members
Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

Rearranging their cage frequently, and limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day will help tremendously. Please be sure you never put a nest box or anything that could be used as a nesting site in their cage.

When they come into condition, limit the amount of protein in their diet at that time.

I would advise you to remove the wooden dowel perch and replace it with natural wood perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

The information in the link below offers better options for perches.

What beautiful budgies you have!

As you’ve seen, both female and male budgies can make friendly pets. It’s not necessarily true that males are “nicer”. Each has an individual personality, and you can’t tell gender by behavior. As mentioned above, please make sure to prevent accidental breeding. You can find links on how in the breeding Stickies.

Also, it’s not necessary to transfer them to the sleeping cage at night. Of course it’s always good to have a spare cage on hand, for a hospital cage, or if they like another place to play during supervised out of cage time.

Sunset had gorgeous colors! The yellow and blue combo is my favorite on budgies . No, she’s not a rainbow. Looks like a dominant pied (heavily pied) maybe with another mutation making her wings all clear?, opaline, single factor goldenface. Not sure the shade of blue, my guess is cobalt or mauve.

Please take the time to read through our Stickies and Articles. You’ll find answers to many questions. If you can’t find the answers you’re looking for, we’re here for you .

I actually have a perch that is a mini branch they love it but I only moved it upside down hoping they would permanently switch to the plump no cage but since they love both cages I'm going to put the branch perch back down. I do need another one for the second cage. I also have a sand perch.

Actually I don't transfer them they do this on their own. When I first got them they started in the grey cage. My roommate gave away her birds and had the larger pink cage available. At the time Sunset was molting (I was scared she was plucking her feathers at first.) and while she was molting she became more aggressive towards Sky so I figured she needs her own space. I don't like to just grab my birds and I wanted them to get comfortable going in the new cage, well I had a mirror above that cage and they found it and loved it. I learned mirrors aren't the best for budgies so I finally removed the mirror but they love exploring and playing in the pink cage and every morning they end up in they grey cage I took a lot of things out the grey cage hoping they would just stay in the pink but they still like both so I'm going to make the grey cage cozy again.
