Default Is my new budgie a female?

Hi,

A few days ago I and my girlfriend bought a new budgie. We already have a male budgie which is over one year old and needs a female as we are not always home.
We were originally planning to buy a female, but in one animal store we saw a budgie which was obviously sick and was going to die (one was already dead, but the guy working there didn't even notice) so we bought it and are now treating it in a separate cage. In the beginning it wasn't able to use it wings and was kinda having a tough time to stay on its legs. Now it is able to jump and wave with wings, but still not able to fly.

We named her Kara but I am not sure of the gender. Can someone with more experience help me

Welcome to the forums!

I'm glad you brought Kara home and have been nursing him back to health.
Your Kara is a gorgeous and very cute budgie boy!
While there is a bit of discolouration above the nostrils, I can see there a bluish colour, not white and the cere is quite purplish too, indicating young male.

I'm sure once Kara gets his full health back and when quarantine is over and you introduce him to your other budgie, they'll soon be the best of friends!
Good luck with everything!

I'm sure once quarantine is over they will be very happy together. It's great you were able to rescue him!

Hello Kara and lucky owner!

Welcome to TB. I'm glad everyone answered before me because I would have bet girl and looked like the dummy that I am (still learning, still learning...)

Everyone on this forum is awesome, friendly and super helpful. I hope to see more of you and your beautiful baby around.

Hi,

Thank you for the quick responses and for the help Kara (soon to be renamed to a boy's name) is now in good health, sings a lot and even managed to do a little flight I guess I will introduce him soon to his new buddy, Lucky.

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

I'm glad you were able to adopt your little budgie boy and are giving him a safe and loving home!
Karma coming to you for doing so!

Having two males is actually great. I'm sure they will become good budgies when they meet after the 4-6 week quarantine period has ended.
