Introducing Branch, a new addition to our home. Several weeks ago a tragedy occurred involving our vision cage and three year old. Unfortunately, we lost Olaf our beautiful little gray budgie. I only went to the breeder to tell her what happened not really wanting to come home with a new budgie. Well needless to say this one called to us. So after making some security changes to the cage, Brach came home a few weeks later.
Now I need help, I was told he was a boy. But, sometimes in certain light Branch's cere take on a pink color. There are no white edges and in most light the cere appears to be blueish or purple.
It's definitely true that each budgie is an individual, he is so different from Olaf. The day we brought Olaf home, he was flying around the cage, very vocal, and interested in us. When we walked up to the cage he would fly over to us in his cage. Branch is much less vocal, I think he enjoyed the social structure of his breeder flock better, when I first saw him, he was holding court telling all the others what for. I guess eventually he'll accept us as his flock.
