Default New Budgie - Assistance Request

Hi guys I'm new to this site but anyways I got a 4 month old or so albino budgie from a breeder I strictly told him I wanted a male because I already have a female (bluish grey) who is kinda lonely... so he only had an albino and a lutino which he assured me were males after I asked him 3 times... looking at the birds I was unsure cus their cere looked quite similar to my female's when she was young but I took his word since he is a breeder.... anyways I brought the bird home and my older female is not getting along with the new one who was actually not aggressive at all until he/she learned to be defensive because of the old one. Anyways to not make things longer, I feel quite sure my new albino budge is a female not exactly because of the behavior but mainly because of the color of the cere..

Maybe you guys can help me know for sure with these pictures, thank you.

Hi and welcome to TB,Demigod! I think your bird is a female. Why didn't you start a new topic?

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

From the pictures you posted, your beautiful little budgie does appear to be male.
Were the pictures of your budgie taken with flash or in natural light?
Flash washes out the color of the cere making it difficult to determine the gender.

How large is the cage the budgies are in at this time?
Do you have multiple food and water dishes in the cage?
Is the older female bullying the younger bird or is she just sometimes aggressive toward it?

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

Hello don't stress if you post in the wrong area a mod can fix that up easily for you. the main thing is you get your question out there for all to see and hopefully you will get a reply that is helpful.

Thank you so much Faerybee, the pictures weren't taken with flash I just used the natural light in my room .

The first few days my older female bit the albino budgie a few times now she has stopped probably because the albino one learned to be defensive but she still makes this sound at the albino one like saying get away and sounding annoyed.

The cage is a breeder/flight cage that can divide in two and I don't know the dimensions but I'm thinking is around 24 by 11 by 16

What is happening is normal behaviour your older budgie is showing dominance towards the new one. Budgies especially hens can be quite territorial. What you can do is take everything out of the cage and rearrange the cage set up, when you place the birds back in the cage let the new one in before you add the older one this hopefully will stop the territory issue they are both entering a new territory together so to say.

Welcome to the forums!
From all the photos your beautiful budgie looks very much like a girl to me.

You're welcome.

Go with what aluz tells you regarding gender over what I said -- she's MUCH better than I when it comes to these things.

The cage you have currently is too small for two budgies.

24"x11"x16"
Volume = 4224 cubic inches


The Minimum recommended size for 2 budgies would be 30x18x18"
Volume = 9,720" cubic inches

Bigger is always better when it comes to cages for your birds.
If you have the room and can afford it, this is a great cage and an excellent price.
I have five cages just like this one and have no more than 2 birds in any one cage.
