Kobe_Gigi is on a distinguished road
Default Please Confirm The Genders

I’ve been working from home and need a companion. Purchased the blue one last month. Spending a lot of time with her. Read a lot of articles and videos online. Been having a lot fun taking care of her so I decided to buy another one to keep her happy when I finally have to go back to the office. I believe the yellow one is a male. But I would like ask you to help me. I know they are still very young and DNA test is the only accurate way to do it.

I named the girl Gigi and the male Kobe.

Currently they are separately staying in small cage. Waiting for a bigger cage to be delivered. They spend almost all of the time outside though.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

In the first pictures, the blue appears to be female and the yellow is definitely male.
The second bird should have been put into quarantine before introducing it to the female.

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.

With a mixed gender pair, it is imperative you do everything necessary to prevent breeding.

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members
Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

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.

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.

Thank you for your quick response I have both birds scheduled to see an Avian vet tomorrow. The yellow bird is not eating unless I have the food in my palm. He Is still adjusting to his new home.

How old is the yellow budgie?

Baby budgies should not be released to new owners by breeders until they are at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned to help prevent regression.

How did things go with the Avian Vet?
