Default Is Joel actually Jolene?

Hi all, first post!

This budgie is approximately 8 months old and the cere originally was a light blue that has now turned a crusty brownish.

I want to be able to call him/her by the right gender!

Thanks.

Yes,it's a Jolene! The brown and crusty cere means that your hen is in breeding condition.

Welcome to TB!

I agree, you have a beautiful Jolene there!

Thanks you two!

How prolific are budgies at breeding - we have two males in the cage with Jolene? Will they start breeding?

I need to look into this a bit more because I know nothing tbh about budgies (they're not actually mine, they belong to my cousin, and she's never had both sexes together).

Remove everything out of the cage what could be used as a nest hole. The safest thing is to separate the female from the males,at least as long as the female is in breeding condition. Budgies of under the age of one year shouldn't breed anyway.

Thanks.

We'll have to look into giving her away because we don't want them to breed.

Really? It's not likely they are going to breed when you keep them in separate cages... A lot of TB members have male/female pairs and never had them breeding. But maybe the experts can give you better information...

Hi there and welcome to Talk Budgies! Your Jolene is adorable! Housing her with males shouldn't be a problem if you take the proper precautions. Here is a thread about how to discourage breeding: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

Good luck

Thanks, and my cousin is now keeping her rather than selling her.

She has placed her into her own cage and she is now in a different room. It does seem wrong though having her in a totally separate room so I may persuade her to bring her back into the living room, whilst keeping her in her separate cage.

I could do with some advice regarding her wing as well, but I'll put it in the proper section.
