Default Young budgies age?

Hi all I didn't breed this budgie but was wondering it's age? One person said 8-10 weeks while another said 5-6 weeks? It pigs out on Millet but only eats very small amounts of seed I sprinkle on the cage floor.

This chick is definitely below 8 weeks of age. Looking at the chick's overall size and growth of tail feathers, I'd say the little one is 5 weeks old and very recently weaned. During this time you can also offer egg food and soft veggies. It's important to offer a lot of variety and keep a close eye on the chick because due to the very young age, there may be a regression when it comes to the full weaning process.
Good luck with your cute chick!

Thanks, I thought it was a young one. going to offer it veggies and egg food. I also got a gram scale so will weigh her every morning to keep an eye on that. She also has one wing clipped, guessing they think it would help taming. I might have to do the other now for balance

You're very welcome!
In my humble opinion, a budgie this young shouldn't have had the wing(s) clipped so soon, but now there's not much to be done. A 5 week old chick is still very easy to tame without ever resorting to clipping.

Your baby budgie is adorable. I hope there is no regression since she was taken from her flock at such a young age.

I'm moving your thread over to New Budgie Arrivals.

I'll be looking forward to seeing lots of pictures and reading stories about her as she grows up!
Have you named her yet?
