Lightbulb Budgie Sexing

I caught a budgie, a escape from a cage. After a few weeks I would like to find a partner for her / him, but I can not decide whether it is male or female.
I'm leaning toward female, but at the same time the cere is a litle bluish.
Maybe someone with more experience can help me.





Best regards
Ricardo

The little one is a hen.

When you say you caught her do you mean you found this one? Is so have you tried to locate the owners as someone out there could be missing her.

Yup found her in a park just outside a Angra do Heroismo (Azores), did look for the owner for a couple of days and no one show up. She was in bad shape and weak i could grab her by hand without mouch efort.

Do you belive is a Girl too?
This one is a litle darker in person than the pic shows, but in a male the cere should be mouch more darker rigth.

Pretty little girl, I love the yellow and blue combo. It looks as if she is missing some feathers around her eye, is that the case or does it just look that way in the picture? It also looks as if she may have a case of scaly face mites, when I look at the cere it looks a bit like what you see with that issue, or it could just be dryness from being outside and perhaps malnourished. Do you have access to an avian vet?

Hi! to Talk Budgies

The little girl definitely needs to be treated with either ivermectin or Scatt spot-on treatment for Scaly Mites.

https://www.amazon.com/Vetafarm-Prod...for+bird+mites

Do not consider introducing another budgie until you are certain she is completely clear of all mites.
You will need to do a deep cleaning of the cage, toys, perches and everything she's been in contact with after the treatment.

There are many things to take into consideration before getting another bird.

Do you really want another pet?

1. If you decide to get another budgie in the future, please be sure to observe quarantine for the new budgie.

Quarantine means housing the new bird in a different cage in a different room than the current bird (as far away from the room the current bird is in as possible) for a period of 35-45 days.

Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"


2. Introducing the new bird to the current bird

Introducing two birds


3. Flock Dynamics

Your Harmonious Flock

4. Where do you plan to get the new bird?

Why buy from an reputable breeder rather than a big box pet store


5. Vet Expense and Housing
Do you have the time, finances, etc to devote to another bird?

Are you ready, willing and able to house the new budgie separately on a permanent basis if it does not get along with your current bird after quarantine?



Be Prepared for Veterinary Care Expense

If you end up with a mixed gender pair, you will need to be sure you do everything necessary to discourage breeding.

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:

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!

For Countries with no Avian Veterinarians:

While it is very challenging for people who live in countries with no Avian Vets, there are steps you can take to help ensure your budgies' health.

With the right motivation, you can work with a regular or veterinarian to get the proper care for your budgie(s).

You will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life.

We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet.
With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

When you develop a good relationship with a regular veterinarian, that individual can collaborate via telephone or Skype with Avian Veterinarians in other countries if necessary to get assistance in appropriate diagnosing and prescribing treatment for your Avian companions.

Best wishes
