Default Meet Nimbus!

Sean and I are pleased to introduce our new little budgie... Nimbus!

We named him Nimbus because he reminds us of fluffy clouds in a sunny blue sky. He has been with us for 12 days now and he is progressing wonderfully! He steps up, eats from our hands, chirps his little heart out, and plays with his swing. He's getting more comfortable being outside of his cage, too.

We got him from a breeder that was recommended by Penry's breeder. She had a nice selection but this one was the clear choice for us. He's still a baby, about 10-12 weeks old now. In a few weeks, we will introduce him to Penry.

To us, he looks like a sky blue opaline greywing (or clearwing). What do the mutation experts think?

We just love him so much and can't wait to see him learn, become more brave, and develop a personality.

Congratulations on your extremely cute budgie boy!
From those pics I agree with your guess, little Nimbus is a sky blue greywing opaline budgie and guess what, he has the same colours as my girl Dinda, you can see her below for comparison.

Yaayyy!!

I'm so excited to meet Nimbus. He is absolutely precious.
I'm sure Penry is going to be very happy to have Nimbus as a new buddy a few weeks from now.

Congratulations on the darling new addition to your family, Chloe and Sean.

Thank you! It took us a really long time to pick out a name for him, but I think Nimbus is perfect! I'm sure he will grow up to be a big ham that loves getting his picture taken so there will definitely be more of him

Thanks for the ID. Nimbus does look a lot like your little Dinda! And then there's the twins Penry and Luigi! I was kind of hoping that Nimbus would turn into a girl because (s)he and Penry would make the cutest little babies . Have you/could you put Dinda and Luigi together?

Thanks Deb! We are so happy to have him and we are smitten already! He's doing really well settling in and I am so proud of him!

Wow...Nimbus is a handsome little bird and it sound's like he is progressing extremely well.

Nimbus is very well named, I am sure he will be a great friend for Penry and your little flock will have an amazing time when you introduce them.
May he enjoy a loving and happy life with you and your flock Chloe and Sean.

You're very welcome!
Luigi and Dinda are half siblings so I can't really pair them up for breeding. When the time is right I will allow Luigi and his mate Goldilocks to breed.
And as to Dinda, I may let her have a clutch with Leonel.
