Hi there and to the forums!

You've been given great advice above; he's a gorgeous little boy What a handsome man! Does he have a name?

Meanwhile, you have come to a great place to learn even more about the best practices for budgie care! Be sure to read through the many articles and stickies we have around here. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd be happy to help

Cheers

EDIT to add mutation: He looks to be a cobalt double factor violet recessive pied budgie

Hello

As others have said, that’s a cute little boy. Looks like a recessive pied, unless he has patches of color higher up than his belly. Maybe violet factor cobalt...

Be sure to read through our Stickies and Articles, to get the best information on keeping budgies. There’s some essential information, as well as answers to many questions.

Looking forward to hearing more once you get your budgie!

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.
