Default Help me get to know my new budgies!

Hi i guess you could say I'm a new budgie gramma! We brought home two new birds about 2 weeks ago. On my daughters 7th birthday she and her sister picked out 2 parakeets. It's been about 30 years since I've had one of my own - the sweetest bird ever! I however don't know a lot about them and have been searching the internet. Anything you can tell me about these two, gender, age, etc... I would be very grateful!

Sunny is the yellow/grey one. Poppy is the blue and white one.

Welcome to the forums! You have certainly come to the right place as you will find all you need to know on budgie care here.
The information on the several articles and sticky threads at the top of each section of the forums will be extremely useful as you become reacquainted with the species and up to date on the best practices on budgie care.

Congratulations on your new budgie friends!
Poppy is a young male while Sunny is a female. Looking at their overall appearance, I'd say they are both about 4 and a half months old.
Since you have a pair and in order to discourage any breeding behaviour later on, it's best for you to follow the recommendations on this link below:

Best of luck with your budgies!

Thank you for your reply! I suspected that was their gender. I will check out the article you suggested

I agree completely with aluz.

Poppy and Sunny are a very cute couple and I look forward to seeing lots more of them in the days to come.
