Hi! to Talk Budgies

The pictures you've posted are not adequate to determine your budgies' gender. I don't know who on Talk Budgies Facebook would have told you they are two girls as those matters are always referred to this forum.

If you wish to know the genders of your budgies, please post full-sized, clear in-focus pictures of their ceres taken in natural light.

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

I just want to say that sky has the typical white rings around her nose and light blue cere. Thunder on the other hand is pinkish with maybe a hint of brown but looks pinkish purple.

Hi there and to the forums!

Based on what you've described, Sky does sound like a girl, although, as Deborah said, the posted pictures really aren't the best for determining gender as we can't really see their ceres

Also, I noticed on another thread you mentioned Thunder wasn't a "true" albino. Albino budgies are completely white with red eyes and pink feet, if there is any colour on them at all and they don't have red eyes, they are not albino and could be any variety of mutations

For example, if he's mostly white, but still has a pinkish cere as well as some blue on his lower belly and rump, he is most likely recessive pied. Recessive pied budgies have a few coloured patches and are mostly white (blue based budgies) or yellow (green based budgies). The male's cere in this mutation stays pink their whole lives, like an albino

Hopefully you're able to get some clearer pictures of their ceres, as well as chest and wings, if you'd like mutation confirmation!

Anyways, it's great to have you with us around here Be sure to read through all the links FaeryBee provided as they will be helpful in staying up to date on the very best of budgie care!

Cheers!

Welcome to the forums and the ever exciting world of budgie ownership!
You have certainly come to the right place as you will find all you need to know on budgie care here.
If you are relatively new to budgies, the info on the articles and sticky threads located at the top part of each section of the forums will be extremely useful.
Be sure to pay extra attention to the Diet and Nutrition and the Taming and Bonding sections of Talk Budgies.

From the photos you attached, the bird on the left who seems to be a recessive pied budgie appears to have a uniform deep purplish cere and this would make him a male. Due to his colour mutation, the cere will retain the immature colour and will not change to the royal blue colour upon reaching maturity.
The blue opaline budgie on the right seems to have an overall whitish cere indicating female.

So they could have opaline babies or recessive pied babies? Had a pair hawk was like an opaline and had a female rainbow and they had rainbows coloring. Any other advise on these two I currently have?

Not necessarily, to have visual opaline chicks, your male budgie would have to be split (having the gene in hidden form) for opaline. The same thing goes for your female, you would only get visual recessive pied chicks if she is carrying it in split form.
Most likely you would have normal budgies with blue colour, possibly sky blue and cobalt from looking at your pair.
These chicks would be split for recessive pied and the males would additionally be split for opaline.

Still it's way too soon to be thinking of potentially breeding this pair. You just got them and they are likely still very young for the task and until they are at least one 1 year old, they should be discouraged from breeding and the first step is to not provide anything that they could use as a nest.

I need some good recommended toys, they don't play with basketball toy with mirror and don't know where I put the other toys. I noticed plastic weird ring toy dangerous to budgies, and hope you can help me out. We have a petsmart and faribault animal center and super Walmart, pets and fish didn't have much in the way of toys with mirrors

In order to avoid the development of potential issues from the exposure of mirrors and mirrored toys on the cage, it's best to stay away from these.
