Default She or he?

Hello everyone. I bought a grey budgie in February this year at pet store and they told me that he/she is young so they couldn't tell is it a male or a female... So can you help me? I also have a green male budgie. Thank you.

Thank you for your answer. We are so excited now. My husband made a huge cage for them and we will place for them a place for breeding so I hope everything will be ok. Ofc, when they grow up a little bit, they are too young now. Here are some photos in daily light.

Why do you want to breed your birds, do you have experience in breeding and do you have an avian vet? Before breeding you need to gain a lot of knowledge and be prepared financially to deal with anything that may arise. Please read through the information in the breeding section of the forum, that is by no means all that is needed but it will help you to understand what is needed and some of the the questions you need to ask yourself. It is not as simple as just putting a male and female together.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Your budgie is a very pretty little girl.

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.

Breeding pet store budgies isn't something I would ever recommend. Pet store birds already have a very weakened genetic pool due to the inbreeding and birdy-mills that supply them.
Additionally, you must take into account each individual budgie's age, personality, temperament, health, etc before determining if that bird is a good candidate to be a budgie parent.

Most people should never breed their birds and their are ways to discourage breeding which I hope you will be open to and will employ diligently for the health and well-being of your feathered friends.

Never put a nest box or anything in the cage that could possibly be used as a nesting site.
Limit their daylight hours to 8-10 hours per day, rearrange their cage frequently and limit the amount of protein in their diet when they come into condition.

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!

Your budgie is a very sweet little girl, but you should never breed your budgies without doing all the proper research first.

Budgies are not guppies and putting two in a breeding cage without having an actual background in the proper methods and practices could be disastrous. By breeding your birds without researching properly, consulting with an avian vet, adjusting their diet, etc., you are putting them in danger

There are a lot of complications that can result from breeding budgies such as nest abandonment, egg binding, chick abuse, malnutrition, stress to the parents or chicks, etc. Please reconsider breeding your birds until you've done the proper research in order to give your birds the best chance to live the best life possible

Meanwhile, you've come to a great place to learn even more about budgies - including budgie breeding! - so please be sure to read through the links provided above by FaeryBee to ensure you're up to date on everything.

If you have questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help. Remember, we're just here to give you everything you need to give your budgies the best care

We hope to see you around!
