I'm hoping someone will estimate the age of my budgie for me.. if that's possible- I'm not looking for a pinpointed age, just an estimate- like 3-4 months, 4-6, etc... it doesn't really matter I guess, but I'd just like to know.. I've tried looking at his eyes and bars on his head but I don't really know what I'm looking at.. he doesn't have bars all of the way to his cere and I don't know about his eyes, they look dark to me but at times it seems they may have have a dark brown edge, his cere is bluish purple, if that matters.. is there anyway to tell from the band on his leg? From what I can see there is ABS 44G (or 44C) and and sideways 15... if there are more letters or numbers I can't see and he won't let me hold him yet. Also if it helps narrow it down any, midway through August the breeder said he was still too young for him to accurately tell me the sex.. if you need a specific angle to make your guess just let me know
Since the leg-band has a sideways 15 on it, that means he was hatched in 2015.
As the breeder indicated he was too young to determine gender in mid-August, he was probably around 4-6 weeks old at that time.
Therefore, I would estimate his age to be between 5-6 months.
