Default Gay Budgies?

I wonder if anyone has come across two males behaving like a pair before? My two cock birds completely ignore the hens and feed flirt and seem to adore each other. Both have bright blue ceres, however one of them did have a cere that turned dark brown for a week but is now bright blue again. He/she is also way bigger than my other budgies. I am so confused about what is going on here can anyone help. I

First, to answer your question:
Yes, same gender budgie couples sometimes develop very close bonds with one another.

I'd like to ensure your budgies are actually both male, however.

How long have you had these budgies?
It would be very helpful if you could post full-sized close-up pictures of the budgie' cere (the one that went brown for a week) so we can determine for sure if it is actually a boy or is really a female.

Please post the photos in this thread.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

Yes its very common for male budgies to pair with each other, as well as 2 hens together. I dont think budgies diffrentiate genders as much when they pick a partner. I have had many same/sex pairs as i do have 2 young males paired now.

Could you enter a pic of your pair?
It sounds like you may have a cock-hen or 2 hens as you mentioned they had light blue ceres, which is normal for young hens or hens out of condition. They will have a babyblue cere with white around the nostrils and may have hint of brown, or completely brown cere. Males are always royal blue, unless they are Ino or recessive pied, then they will have dark pink cere.

This is common among budgies. Twigs has not bonded with Mink my female, while he was very close with another male that I had.

It's hard to tell on Bentley (but I bet it's just me and my eyes) if the blue cere is the unmistakably dark bright blue of a male. But I'll take your word for it, since you've seen it in person and I haven't lol. Sometimes Mink's cere looks fairly blue too, but not as blue as a male of course.
