Default Picking up a friend for Ducky today!

In about 3 hours I'll be picking up a 2 month old budgie & I'm so excited!

The only thing I'm a little worried about is that I'm not quite sure of the gender. The breeder says he thinks he's male but is not 100% certain. If he/she did happen to be female, would they get along or would I have to house them separately? I'm a little worried about this as my mum really doesn't like the idea of having two separate bird cages in the same room (mainly because we have cats, which means the cages need to be placed on tall pieces of furniture so it stands out quite a bit)

Anyway, I'll be posting some photos tonight when I have him settled in!

Ok, so I've brought him home and after a bit of a struggle got him into his new home. I'm super stressed over it though. He escaped my hands and continuously flew into the walls, so hopefully he hasn't hurt himself!
Although I think he may have messed his tail up a bit...

I'll take a photo of his cere a bit later - really don't want to stress him out any more.

I'm sure he'll be just fine. After the initial shock, he'll start to settle in. Give him some time to himself--and you take a stress break, too

I suggest a hot bubble bath and hot chocolate, but I mean...

That way he won't pick up on your stress

Gorgeous baby! I freaked out my parakeet Tico on his second day with me. I gave him space and worked with him at a much slower pace and now I have his total trust. He will sit on my shoulder, give kisses and preen my hair. Try not to worry all won't be lost just because of one bad scare.

Thanks for the reassurance, guys! i'm such a worrywart haha.
Here's some photos of the cere. Sorry, they aren't very clear as it's starting to get a little dark. In the photos it looks pretty white around the nostrils, however in person it's a lot more blue.

Also, just wondering about his leg band. I've never actually seen one on a budgie here to be honest, so do they just get left on, or should I take him somewhere to get it removed? Only asking because I've heard of budgies getting caught in toys because of them.

Congratulations on your new little friend! From these latest pics, I can tell you that you do have a cute budgie boy!

About the leg band it would depend on the type. If it's an open band, then it would be best to have it removed.

Thank you so much! I'm in love with him already
All he needs is a name now! Can't decide between Alfie & Joey...

Your new baby boy is absolutely stunning!
From the two names you're deciding between, I like the name "Alfie" for him.
