Gender and Age Request
Hello everyone! I found a budgie almost three weeks ago close from my house, that little bird was starving so I took it, cause I know they don't survive alone here in Brazil.
He's not domesticated but now I can already feed him with my hands. I need help to determine his age and sex so I can name him...
I believe he's male but I have no idea of his age though. Thanks for your help!

a bit of blue around his nostrils

Hi! :welcome: to Talk Budgies

Thank you for rescuing the darling little budgie BOY.

Have you made an effort to locate his owners?

If you are unable to locate the owners and end up keeping him, I recommend you replace the wooden dowel perches in the cage with natural wood perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

This link gives examples of better options for perches. :)

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.

Thanks for the answers FaeryBee and StarlingWing! I indeed tried to locate the original owners but no results.
I'll replace the perches as soon as possible!

Handsome boy. He appears on my screen to have fine bars (lines) on his forehead which indicates that he is quite young (less than 6 months old). Enjoy him, he's a lucky bird
that you rescued him.

What a lucky little boy! I actually recently found my little girl Tetra as well and also didn't have any luck finding the owners :(

Thanks everyone for answering! We finally named him, Piri is officially the new family member haha

StarlingWings 06-13-2018 07:05 PM

Piri is a very cute name for your little guy! I'm so glad you were able to rescue him and I look forward to seeing more photos of him around here!
