I'm not entirely sure if this should go into the Budgie Sexing sextion(get it? Ha, word puns) but I have a bit of a question that may seem either extremely unintelligent or may completely change what I've thought my budgies' genders have been this entire time.
This is Sparks and (Vanilla)Bean, whom I had been informed are definitely female, yet, something odd had happened a little recently that I had the pleasure of seeing. Now, I've done some googling, but I know this is the place I can know for sure.
Sparks (Pied Green/Yellow baby) recently began twitching her head, rather violently, before bursting into dance. (I actually managed to get a video, which is [URL="https://blue-butted-birdy.tumblr.com/post/141235585578"]here [/URL)
And this is where the dumb part comes in: The dancing took me by surprise and I went out of my way to make a forum post mostly because,
I thought that only the males did the mating dances(?). I have read that the females may dance as well, but it really just came out of nowhere. And at the moment, I believe my other bird (Meeko, my Red Rump) may be passing an egg probably because of the longer days/spring, maybe the sudden changes affected the budgies, too?
It didn't seem that Sparks was really dancing for anyone or anything, like a male would do, but I still want to be sure of their gender.
(Also as an added note, two of the new smilies look like my budgies and it makes me happy inside)
