Default Might need a new name?

So we lost our male budgie last week. He died suddenly. we have a new member of the family that I named Oliver Tweets; however, I am not sure he should be an Oliver.
I am not sure of any details: age, gender, etc. so any advice would be appreciated.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your other budgie. Your new little one is sure a cutie. Oliver is a good name for him. It's not the clearest pic, but the pinkish lavender colored cere indicates male. Looks like he's going through his first molt, and the age they start can vary a bit. He is young, but I'll leave it to others who know better to tell you age.

Welcome to the forums!
I'm sorry for the recent passing of your male budgie...

I agree that you have a gorgeous young male there, he still has a few bars on the forehead area.
By looking at his overall appearance, I'd say he is close to reaching 4 months old.

I love the name you chose for him, best of luck with little Oliver Tweets!

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
