Default Baxter?

Hi all

After four years I finally decided to get my boy, Oliver, a companion. Although he has no clue there's another budgie in the house because poor Baxter is quarantined in a different room. I can't quite tell if Baxter here is a girl or a boy. I'm leaning toward hen.

Best guess? Anybody?

ThanksBaxter Part Deux-imageuploadedbytapatalk1441354814.154579.jpgBaxter Part Deux-imageuploadedbytapatalk1441354827.560055.jpg

From that pic I would guess boy...

A couple more closeup's without using flash would help...

Thanks, Randy. I was hoping for a boy (hence the name) and the pale purple cere did give me some doubt because the shop owner was saying girl while I initially thought boy. Baxter is sleeping at the moment. Will try to get a closer flash free pic in the morning.

Natasha,

Baxter is Precious!!

I agree with Randy that from the picture posted Baxter appears to be male and a photo without flash will definitely be helpful.

Thanks! I was so two minded about getting him. Oliver has been alone for so long and I was scared of losing the bond I have with him. But I think he's going to love having an extra special friend. And while Baxter is in quarantine, I'm going to try to bond with him as well. He's already doing well with the step-up even though it's only day 3 in his new home.

I would guess boy as well, but an additional picture without flash would help greatly if you would like a more definite answer

Baxter is the cutest! I agree with all that's been said I'm sure Oliver will love to meet him in a month

Default Baxter?

Hi all, thanks for all your feedback. I took a few more pictures in natural light. Did it through the bars because we just had a very nervous little step up session (he's getting better at it even if he doesn't want to leave his safe corner much), so I didn't want to freak him out by stick a camera right in his face. Just to confirm... Boy? And I'm wondering about his mutation. I know it's not easy to tell until I have better pics but your best guess for now? I'm thinking dilute or greywing. Poor little fid, he's still so scared. Maia and I are sitting in the spare room with him for now (Oliver isn't happy, he wants to be let out of his cage and he's probably wondering where we are. I can hear him complaining from here )

Poor scared little baby. Not sure he's eating yet. There seem to be a few seed husks lying about so I'm hoping he sneaks a bite when I'm not in the room.

Hi all

I have taken a few (hopefully) better pics of Baxter. So what do you all think? Definitely a boy?
