Default Chippy is Here!

Yay! Chippy got to come home with us Saturday morning. She has some very itchy pinfeathers & super long toenails, but otherwise seems very well! She loves watching tv with us, & doesn't hesitate to eat & preen with us there. She really likes her swing & bells. I think she is going to fit in just fine.

Any guesses on her age? They said 2 to 3 years; after the cere matures I have no idea how to estimate age.

Congratulations on adopting Chippy! Even despite the current moult, she's a beauty!

Once budgies reach adulthood (1+ years) it's not possible to determine age with accuracy.
I see she has a leg band and by reading the information on it, you can tell the year she has hatched.

I'm glad Chippy is settling in well and I'm wishing you the best of luck with her!

Thanks guys! The band reads QPI 2364. I couldn't figure it out, does it mean anything to anyone else?

No, unfortunately it doesn't. The leg bands I'm familiar with will have the breeder's ID, the budgie's individual number (number of chicks hatched in the breeding season) and the year of hatch. If there was a 14 or 15, you would know the budgie had hatched in 2014 or 2015 respectively.

Another way to tell the year is by the leg band colour. I'm not familiar with the different colours used, since I live in a different country.

Congratulations on having little Chippy home now!
She's a cute little girl.

Breeder bands can be issued by the ABS, various budgie clubs and societies or purchased directly from suppliers by breeders.
Is the band on Chippy an open or closed band?
If a breeder purchased through L&M breeder bands, they have the option of choosing from eight different colors so the color may not necessarily correspond with the color used in a specific year by ABS or other organizations.

Unfortunately, since the band does not have the normal sideways numbers indicating the year, it is of no help in determining her age.

Chippy is just gorgeous and I'm happy to hear she's settling into her new home so well

I agree with the others regarding age, unfortunately it's not really possible to know exactly.

However old she is, I know she'll love living with her new human "flock"

I can't wait to see more of her!
