Just got my budgie a new friend!
Hi everyone! I got my budgie Rio a new friend yesterday, Mia. I wanted a recessive pied hen no older than two or three months and I chose her myself because I didn't trust the pet shop worker expertise ( He sold my friend an adult hen and a young hen as male and female pair...). I need your help to confirm her sex, age and mutation, hoping I didn't get it wrong!

Yup, that's a young recessive pied hen. :) The bars on her forehead go down to her cere, so she's pretty young. She hasn't gone through her first molt yet, so I'd say she's likely in the age range you're looking for but could be older. She also lacks an iris ring, but because she's recessive pied she'll stay that way all her life.

She's beautiful! You're absolutely right ;)

Congratulations on your new addition, have you thought of a name for her yet?
