Hi Nancy and to Talk Budgies!

Your new friend is a pretty little female.

Although you are not new to owning budgies, you may not know that toys made with cotton rope can be dangerous as ingestion of the fibers can easily cause crop impaction. You might want to consider only letting your budgie play with the toy in the picture when she has out-of-cage time under your close supervision.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

Oh my gosh FaeryBee I did not know that about the cotton toy!!! I will remove it ASAP as I have plenty of others. And thank you for the helpful info. I had a hunch Birdie (I know not very original) was a female but sometimes I just can't tell. Do you happen to know how old she might be?

Thanks so much
Nancy

Nancy,

I've enhanced your photo and rotated it so it can be seen more clearly.
It appears that the barring on her head goes almost down to her cere.



I'm guessing she's about 3 months old

Hi Nancy and welcome to the forums

It's lovely to have you and your flock with us. Birdie is a pretty little girl indeed, I love her!
