I'm so excited!
I picked 2 beautiful budgies from a breeder yesterday! One is a boy for sure, the other I don't know. Just in case they are a boy and a girl, I made sure they are not related, so that will not be a problem.
The picture I took isn't very good, but I don't want to bother them too much with strange devices. If they've been here for a few days and are more used to the place, I'll might try to take better pictures c:
The violet one (the picture made it seem 'not violet' though) on the left is a boy for sure, the sky blue one is a riddle. In certain light you can see a female cere, and in another light a male one, so I'll just wait and see.
I have a video on that plays 10 hours of budgie sounds and I see it's definitely making them happier and more relaxed haha.
The sky blue one is already eating, and both are preening a whole bit. Both are chirping along loudly with the video haha! So cute. I hope the violet one will eat soon, because the little guy is actually a bit young, so a bit of a challenge, but I have faith it will work out and he'll take the blue one's example c:
But I also of course don't expect much from them the first few days/weeks, since they have to get used to so many new things. Although, the sounds are definitely making them feel at ease and I'm so happy with that!
So that's that! I'll keep you guys updated <3
