Talking The Eagle has Landed (sorry that was awful haha)

Picked up my budgie last night!!

I named her Shu (after the Egyptian sky god haha), and she's 10 weeks old.
At first she was a bit spooked and would fly around a lot when I put my hand in the cage to give her food/water or anything but she's settled down quite a lot now and exploring + chattering away so it's good to see she's not as stressed as she seemed when she first arrived home.

I'll probably start leaving my hand in the cage etc in a day or two so as not to rush her, for now I'm happy just watching her wander around the cage and fiddle with the toys and stuff in there haha :')

She certainly seems like a bit of a character!!

What a beautiful bird ! Congratulations! I'm sure Shu will get used to the new environment soon, and start settling down.

Are you certain this is a girl? Though it's hard to see from the pics, it looks to me like the cere is a uniform pinkish shade. If so, you have a boy.

Thank you!! It's pretty exciting ahaha

I'm actually not sure haha the people I got it from told me it was a girl so I just went with it, but yeah from what I remember of my research pink is boys and brownish/blue so you're probably right

Managed to get a photo because I couldn't really describe it haha

Congratulations on your latest arrival!
Little Shu (love the name, by the way) is absolutely precious!
She is definitely a young female, but I don't think she is 10 weeks old.
By looking at Shu, I see she is in the process of getting the first tan on her cere, there is some iris development on her eyes and this also proves her slightly older age. With these two factors combined, I'd say she is 6 months old.

Does she have red eyes?
While it's difficult to capture in pictures the eye colour on red-eyed birds, Shu looks like an albino budgie to me.

Abby,

Shu is a beautiful little female and I love the name you chose for her.

I'll be looking forward to seeing lots more pictures of this little darling in the days to come.

She did seem to have grown quite quickly for 10 weeks haha, and yep she's got red eyes so albino
Thanks for your advice and kind words <3

I can now see clearly Shu is a girl . Sorry for the confusion, it looked uniform 'pink' to me in the first pictures.
