Hello all, I've done a lot of reading here but never posted before. You guys have already answered about a hundred questions about my budgies without even knowing it, but I've got one last question I just have to ask What sex is this budgie? You can't see as well in the pictures, but his(?) eyes have a ruby tint, so I do think he's albino rather than another white mutation. My creamino girl, Tussy, is in the foreground in the first picture.
Thanks! Tussy used to be really ugly, all skinny and scraggly. Since I read about proper nutrition here and started putting together fresh food for her she's really blossomed into a new bird. I hand fed her since she was a baby, so she's really special to me.
Now if I can just get those toenails trimmed she'll be a true budgie babe
Welcome to the forums!!
I can tell you with utmost certainty that he is definitely a gorgeous little boy!
What a stunner! Does he have any irises in his eyes?
And Tussy is gorgeous, also She must be a very lucky girl to have you raise her!
I can't wait to see more of your little ones around here, glad you've decided to declare your presence
Talk budgies is a great place to get budgie info! Don't forget to ask about anything you're unsure of
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
Thanks you guys! I was pretty blown away by this guy at the pet shop, he was definitely not only the most striking bird but also the biggest and best put together of any of them. Still working on a name, I've been calling him Joe but it doesn't really fit.
Tussy is about three, and I'm guessing Joe is still under a year. He just kind of tumbles around the branches in his cage like a baby, and he's been much more bold about learning to come to my hand than my other untamed budgies. Maybe he's older and that's just his personality, I've only had him a couple of months now. Time will tell
Gorgeous birds! You said you are trying to make a pair of inos, are you planning on breeding them? I have heard it is not a good idea to pair ino to ino, not sure if that's the case or not or why, but you may want to research that more if that is your plans... Maybe one of our experienced breeders will know and chime in.
