Do I have an Albert or an Alberta?
4 Attachment(s)
This beautiful little bird has me stumped. I've been calling him Albert, without knowing for sure that i have a boy. I think he is a recessive pied, just based on what I have read. To me, he looks like a boy....but I am definitely no expert.
I would like to know what you all think. Do you think I have an Albert, or an Alberta?

Sorry all of my pictures are sideways...

Hi there and :welcome: to the forums!

Your little budgie is beautiful! He's an Albert! What a beautiful little boy :) Because he is indeed a recessive pied, he'll keep his pink cere throughout his life.

You've come to a great place to learn even more about budgies! Be sure to read through the forums as there are hundreds of useful articles and "stickies" which will help you stay updated on the very best of budgie care practices!

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

We look forward to seeing you and your little budgie around the forums!

Cheers :wave:

Thank you so much guys! I thought he might be a boy, and I'm glad that he is. I got my boys about a month ago, and I feel like we are getting along pretty well. They trust me enough now to eat treats that I'm holding.
I know for sure my green fellow is a boy. His name is Armand :-)

More sideways pictures ha ha...I'll will have to figure the picture thing out :-)

Gorgeous boys! I looovveeee recessive pieds! Because his cere will stay pink and he won't develop white irises, he will have that adorable baby look for his whole life!

Hi! :welcome: to Talk Budgies

Albert is certainly an adorable little fellow!

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site

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! ;)

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

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.
