Hi! to Talk Budgies

The two chicks you have pictured are both beautiful little females.

Hopefully, your son is not going to allow the two budgies to breed again after this first clutch.
It is not difficult to prevent breeding.

Rearranging their cage frequently, and limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day will help tremendously. Please be sure you never put a nest box or anything that could be used as a nesting site in their cage.

When they come into condition, limit the amount of protein in their diet at that time.

Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members

Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

How many budgies do you (and your son) have in total?

Are you housing these birds by gender?

I recommend you remove the wooden dowel perches and replace them with natural wood perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.
https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles-...ure-sores.html

This link provides information with regard to better options for perches:
Essentials for a Great Cage

It is not recommended to have mirrors in your bird's cage as interacting with the mirror can contribute to your budgie becoming aggressive and/or territorial.
Additionally, some budgies will begin regurgitating to the mirror to the point where they actually become malnourished. You would be better off to give them shredding toys instead.

I also suggest you remove the hanging seed treat stick from the cage. These should be used very sparingly as they are more like "candy" than healthy food for your birds.

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.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

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
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

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!

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

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi there and to the forums!

As mentioned above, the last two photos are two little girls. However, I can't really see the ceres of the first two in order to accurately determine gender. Would you be able to post more photos of the first two chicks taken in natural light?

Meanwhile, you've been given good advice. Just because you have a male and a female does not mean you should breed them, especially if you are not ready to do so and have not done the adequate research. I'm glad that it went fine overall; however often times you will not be so lucky

Be sure to read through the links provided above as they include the "best practices" for caring for budgies! If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

Best wishes, we look forward to seeing your adorable budgies around the forums!

The two sky blues without another photo look more like females, unless their cere's are purplely pink. A closeup with natural daylight would help. The two "greywings' are beautiful females.

Thankyou, we had no intention of them breeding as he was given them as a birthday present when he asked for 1 biue budgie and the no longer friends brought him the male and female so he would want to breed them. We have already replaced the perches with natural branches. The seed swing was in as treat as there is currently 6 (parents and 4 babies) as we have seed, fresh vegies they have everyday.

The other baby.

Is that the same budgie in the two pictures you just posted?

That one appears to be a female from the light whitish-blue color of the cere.
What is wrong with the middle of the cere in the second picture?

No they are two different budgies but look very similar. The budgie flew into the glass window whilst learning how to fly. Vet said it should clear as it heals but no permanent injury.

Both of those budgies are female as well, then.
