You'll have to wait for some of the experts to help with the gender and age. My guess is that it's a boy because of the pink cere (if it's a boy the cere will turn royal blue when he gets older), and he looks quite young. Maybe 2-3 months? He's very cute! Do you have a name for him yet?

When you get a change, I'd suggest you get some different perches, ideally more natural. It's better for his feet, and you need different sized perches too, so he can properly exercise his feet.

Looking forward to hearing more about your new budgie

Hi again, Ninja! I'm glad your budgie managed to get rid of the poop.
You do have a very cute budgie boy and I'd say he is about 3 months old.
Even though it's hard to tell due to his colour mutation, he appears to still have his baby barring on the forehead area. He doesn't appear to have started his first moult yet.
Looking at the pics he seems to be in very good shape health wise, he has the bright and alert eyes too.
I think he is a cobalt violet opaline full body colour greywing dominant pied budgie, he may be split for recessive pied. You will know for sure once he grows older, if his cere doesn't mature into the royal blue colour and his eyes do not develop irises, you will know he has recessive pied genes on him too.

You may want to change the place where the swing is in case he jumps from a perch, the swing's motion will make him bump into the cage's wall.

I'm also curious to see how your beautiful budgie boy grows into maturity!

Hello and welcome to the forums!

Your little guy is precious and if you post pictures of his wings, we could confirm his mutation, if you'd like I agree with Aluz concerning mutation and cage setup.

It looks like he's all set for a very spoiled life with you

I'm looking forward to seeing lots more of him around here! It's great to have you here with us and congratulations on your new arrival

If you have any other questions, please do ask as we're more than happy to help

Oh, and if it were me, I like the name "Frisko" for him
