Default Finally got my baby!

It's evening where I live so the indoor lighting is horrible right now.. I just brought my baby home today. The lady told me he/she is 3 months old.. This is my first bird so I don't know how to identify the mutation or sex, but I'll be posting pictures over the next few days with better lighting and angles for help with that.. for now we just wanted to say hello.. I'm trying to give him/her some space since this is the first day, but here are the photos I've taken so far of my new baby!

While i adore my new baby and he is a bright green/blue color, my phone was exaggerating the brightness by making him/her look like the feathers were glowing, I believe it was the reflection of light off of my screen in an otherwise dim room.. like I said in the post, i was working with horrible lighting! I just couldn't wait to post a picture though, over the past month I've been collecting toys and bought two cages (the first was a little small so I got a flight cage too) and reading up for how to care for him/her, so when I got home I had to get a picture on here asap! I'll get better ones over the next few days : )

Congrat's on your beautiful bird. I'm sure when you get some closeups, we will be able to help with gender...

You think your phone made the colours brighter?
Try shining an UV light on him tonight and tell us what you think

What a pretty opaline little bird I agree, gender will be told with better pictures, but what I can tell from that picture is you have a gorgeous little friend

Congratulations! Have you thought of a name yet?

Congratulations on your first pet bird ever and welcome to the ever exciting world of budgie ownership!
Your little one is a real cutie! Despite the very bad lighting, from those pics I'd guess you have little budgie girl. But of course photos taken in better lighting will help confirm it or deny it.

Thank you all! What will a uv light do? Do budgies actually glow under one?
