Default Say Hi to Rio

No, I didn't cave in and get number 6, but a friend recently got a budgie and I wondered if you could have a crack at the sex and age.

I'm saying boy and he's still a young baby as he has his baby bars. Any help is appreciated.

Definitely a baby BOY and adorable as can be!
I'd say he's about 8-9 weeks at most.

Are you SURE this isn't YOUR #6??

I fully agree, little Rio is a gorgeous budgie boy and he is very young. I'd say he is fresh from turning 2 months old.

Thanks Deborah and Aluz.
I've been using what I've learnt from here to help my friend choose a budgie.

Oooh how adorably cute he is!!! When I read the title I also thought you got #6 . Are you considering maybe one more once everyone is settled?

ps... I'd love to see more pics of the one who's name I don't know... not Jimmy or Jay, not Skye or Sage, the other beautiful girl... Her mutation looks interesting and we haven't seen her really, unless it's on a post I missed .

I made a post on tumblr for her about male and female budgies. And just as well, she told me that at the pet store they told her its blue for a boy and pink for a girl and when she picked Rio, they gave her an odd look as they thought it was a girl (and she'd told them she wanted a male).
They also aged him at 12-16 weeks of age.

Right now, I'm not considering number 6, but with the females waiting to join Jay and Jimmy and Skye still settling in, I couldn't house another one and put him in quarantine. Skye is settling in really well. He's currently exploring his room and getting some nice out of cage time. I haven't been able to tempt him with millet spray even in his cage so far so it's making bribery a little hard but I'm just happy that he's having a good time. So It's still not a no, but I don't feel he needs it right now.

Oh, you mean Sunny? Sage seems to be a bit more dominant of the two so overall, I spend the least amount of time with the girls. I'm looking forward to them being with the boys as I think having more space will be good for them. I will try and get some new pictures of her soon though.
