Hello and

You have come to the right place to learn more about caring for your budgies!

It looks to me like the one bird is a male. This does not mean that the other one is female. Many pet stores do not know how to tell the genders apart and give incorrect information. If you show us a picture of the other one, we can confirm her/his gender.

If you do have budgies of the opposite gender, please take time to read these articles:

https://www.talkbudgies.com/budgie-br...l-members.html
https://www.talkbudgies.com/budgie-br...want-eggs.html
https://www.talkbudgies.com/budgie-br...e-threads.html

The best advice is to read through all the articles and stickies (threads "stuck" to the top of the forums). Feel free to ask any questions you have. We love to give advice and support!

Good luck with your new companions!

Goldenwing (and Lemon Drop)

Both of these two are probably between 3-5 months (young birds). The green one's cere is a pinky/purple color indicating a young male, this color will turn into a royal darker blue cere as he gets older. The blue budgie with the pale blue/whitish cere looks like a female. Her cere will eventually become crusty brown when she's in breeding condition. Since they live together, as they get older you may want to read the information on this site (stickies) on preventing these two from breeding.
They're both handsome youngsters

Hi welcome to Talk Budgies!

The first budgie, if the cere is the chalky whitish blue in person that it appears on that pic, than you have a girl. More pics with clear close ups in natural lighting would be great. The second budgie is definitely a boy, and older than the first one. Others will be able to give you a better idea of age.

We have a ton of essential information on the best updated practices for keeping budgies happy, so we recommend that you take a little time to read the Stickies at the top of each forum section, paying close attention to the areas of healthcare, behavior, taming and bonding, (and breeding <-- which will let you know how to STOP breeding urges for the health of your pets).

Thank you for taking interest in your budgies’ wellbeing. There are a lot of answers to the more common questions you’ll notice when you’ve familiarized yourself with the site. If after reading you still have questions, please let us know. See you around!

Edit: looks like Phil answered before I submitted my post . They are standard “wild type” budgies, not English.
