Default My newest feathered family member...

Recently ended up with another budgie I ended up with this great sized cage that can fit quite a few budgies in it. Moved my three (Aero, Tweety and Leo) and it was mentioned one more would be nice. I had no objections since there was room and they all get along great and...Tweety gets along with her (I hope!) and just due to that I am thrilled.

I've been wrong before but while watching the 10 or so budgies run around, sing and eat I was more than certain I found a female. She was one of the most quiet ones only making any noise to chase away the male that was....trying to seal the deal. She let two males feed her and they were bobbing their heads and dancing away for her. Her cere looks white underneath the brownish color on top. Her legs are a pinkish color too. And almost a carbon copy in attitude to the two females I have but a hint more patience.

The only thing that has me questioning this is the fact that her actual beak has a slight blue hue to it. I had read somewhere that some females may have that due to an imbalance? But anyways here are the best pictures I could get of the newbie. I was also unable to get a head on view and only left with side and back pictures. She flat out refused to let me get that front on view for the photo.

A blue hue is perfectly normal, she is definitely a pretty girl

Her name will be picked in just a bit ? want to find that perfect one for her. I am happy to say her and Tweety have become best buds and perch next to each other. Aero and Leo have calmed down a weee bit too. I almost wish I hadn't waited so long to add a fourth now.

If you need ideas, there are a few threads with names in the "General Budgie Talk" section
I know that whatever name you choose for her will be perfect!
