Default Meet Jasper

This is my new English Budgie Boy.... Jasper. I fell in love with him the instant I saw him.

He loves food... sleeps a lot.... is easily touchable... and an all around joy.

He is supposedly a violet. I can see the purple coloring on his back in certain light.

I love him.

The second photo is of Jeeves and Jasper. I'm going to switch out the dowel rod on the swing with a branch once I get home to my handy husband. They spend a LOT of time on there and I don't want their fave perch to be that rod.

Your little Jasper is a real cutie and she's very young too! I say she, because I from that pic it's very clear she is a baby budgie girl.

Thanks all.... I'm rather sad. I had specifically said I wanted two BOY budgies... and the breeder insisted that this was a boy. I had my doubts, and figured I could come on here and get the real deal.

I don't have room for two cages... and don't want more than two budgies. I DON'T want a boy and a girl...

So I don't know what to do.

I appreciate your comments. Jasper is gorgeous. Not sure now if I will be keeping her....

Is your main concern breeding/egg's ? I have two hen's and two cock's, and they have never had egg's or exhibited real breeding behavior. Keeping their daylight to 12 hour's, and not giving them nesting areas, will usually help eliminate those concern's...

Well, since it was the breeder's mistake, I would talk to the breeder and talk it over with him. Is there any specific reason you don't want a girl and a boy?

Is there anyone else who thinks my Jasper is a girl? I'm wondering because I don't even know how to bring this up with the breeder..... I told her my previous horror story of a breeder selling me two boy budgies and insisting they were boys.. only to end up with girls.

So this time, I told the breeder that past and how I NEEDED two BOYS and all the reasons why I wanted boys and she commiserated and promised that these were boys.

I have only had them three days. Thinking I want to bring Jasper back even though I love his/her coloring and demeanor. But I CAN'T have a girl. It would entail another drive of at least six hours... and splitting these two up.

What if the breeder INSISTS that the budgie is a boy and won't do anything? Is there ANY chance it could be a boy? Maybe I should show more photos? I'd have to take more tomorrow in the light....

I have only had girls in the past and have not been happy with their flightiness and attitudes. I know not all girls will be the same... but I am gun shy as I was four for four on attitude and them not wanting interaction.

Plus, I don't want to have to worry about eggs and to be honest, I just really wanted boys. I know I sound like a big baby, but I just invested a lot of money (for me) in the birds as well as the cage and accessories and i hate to go home (again) not having what I really wanted and paid for.

I am only here for 2 more weeks and then I go home.... where I am hundreds to a thousand miles from English Budgie breeders. So I basically need to figure out what to do this week....

There is no doubt in my mind that Jasper is a girl... And all I can say is that I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience with your previous budgie girls to the point of not wanting to give a chance this time around.
Having had plenty of budgie girls over my 25+ years of budgie ownership and currently having 4 females, I can say they can be just as rewarding and sweet as the boys, it all depends on personality and some boys can also be shy/nervous and skittish.
Your little Jasper is adorable and seems to be really nice too. I would gladly welcome her into my flock if it were possible.
