Default How old are my babies?

Ivy and Otto are budgie BFFs. I was just wondering how old they are. Otto has some iris rings showing, Ivy none. I don't think that's clear in the photos.
Love having these little ones as part of our family. They both will eat millet from my hand and today Otto actually jumped onto my hand to eat, so of course Ivy did too. Sweet moment.
Thanks in advance for your aging advice!

I would say that Ivy is around 4-5 months old and that Otto is about 6 months. He has gone through his first moult since his cere is the mature colour, but Ivy still has her baby bars so she's a bit younger.

I love their mutations! Especially Ivy, I've always loved cinnamon opalines

Thank you for that!
Just had a wonderful 10 minutes of Otto fearlessly exploring my hand - without food as an incentive - he came to me! Um, is it ok if they nibble on your fingernails? it wasn't too rough and I don't think he wanted to hurt me. I am so glad he is starting to trust me like this.

Nibbling means they're trying to preen you! It's perfectly fine, as long as they aren't chewing off any nail polish or other similar things. You've officially been accepted into their flock

It sounds like he's made great progress with you and I'm sure Ivy will follow his initiative soon.
Keep up the good work!

Beautiful young bird's, and I agree with Starling's age assessment...
