Hey everybody! I want to introduce you to my new love
I have I have not named him/her yet because I am uncertain of the age and gender at this time, plus I love to see what kind of personality that they have after about a week or so being comfortable in their new home!
I just have to say that I love the mix of colors going on - but I have several questions that, although I feel I did my research thoroughly, I cannot answer.
Age: Based off what I have learned, this beauty is still relatively young, due to the bars still being present on their head. Is that correct? This means, he/she hasn't gone through their first molt?
Sex: After looking at the cere in several natural light intensities, I have found that I am confused all over. Mostly it appears white - but both with a pink and blue tint. I'm presuming that due to the young age, it will be hard to tell exactly and I will not know for certain for another month or so?
Type: I haven't seen a budgie like this one where it is a mix of yellow, green, and blue in the style that he/she is in. Is this another thing that may change after the first molt (if they haven't gone through it)? If this is their true color, what defining marks help me determine what sub-type they are?
I'd tried to do much research on my own - but nothing beats a group of owners who know what they are talking about.
Aww thanks everybody! I know that I never would of ever been able to guess the mutation O.o
Today is day 2, and she is slowly becoming more welcoming of her new environment. She was singing a little today after I woke up. I went to change the food/water dishes and put my finger in front of her - not forcing anything - and she stepped up for me. I gently put her on another perch then did it one more time. I do not want to rush anything - I'm actually surprised she stepped up without having to gently press on her feet. I think she's going to be a keeper
I left the room to go tend to my other pets, and she was tweeting away.
