Hello everyone. Hoping someone can tell me the sex and approximate ages of my two new budgies.



Sorry can't seem to get the picture to appear.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

The picture you posted is not a good one for telling the gender of your budgies.
From what I can see, it appears you have two females.
In order to know for sure, please post clear, in-focus full-sized pictures taken in natural light that are frontal views of each budgie's cere.
We will then be able to give you a more accurate determination of their genders.

Post appropriate photos when asking for gender identification

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

Hi there and to the forums!

You've certainly come to the right place to learn all about these lovely little birds.

I agree that although the picture isn't the best, I'm positive you have two girls there. They both show the characteristic pale bluish white cere that young females and those out of breeding condition exhibit

Here's a link you may find useful:

Also, FaeryBee has provided some great resources. Be sure to read through everything so that you are well informed on the best care practices for budgies!

We hope to see you around the forums, and be sure to ask questions if you have any after you read through everything!

Cheers!

Welcome to the forums and the ever exciting world of budgie ownership!
Since you are new to budgies, the information on the several articles and stickies will be extremely useful as you become more familiar with the species.

I agree that you have to beautiful young females.
The budgie closest to the camera is slightly older than the other one, I'd say she is 4 months old.
Your other budgie (the one with more yellow) is about 3 months old.

Thank you for your help. I was told that 2 females shouldn't be together in one cage. Purchased 2 cages, toys, etc. for both. I quarantined them and gradually let them get to know each other through the bars. As you can see in the picture they are now at the point where they don't want to be in separate cages. Should I put them in separate cages or let them be? Any advice would be appreciated.

How large is the cage you have them in at this time?

Some females get along very well together and they look like they are doing fine so I'd let them be.

It is always good to have an extra cage in case the time comes when they come into condition that one becomes aggressive toward the other. This does not always happen, by the way.
