Henry the Budgie
 
My friend has been keeping a secret for me for a little while now.

This is Henry, 12th and final member of the flock.
He was unable to come to my house as having Lucy in quarantine and family visiting made things tricky. My friend who had Jenny looked after him while we had guests.

Congratulations on your latest addition, little Henry is adorable! :love:

Thanks Ana.

He's so precious, the pictures don't do him justice. He's a lot lighter than Sage- both his hue of green and his wings, so I'm guessing he's some different mutation to her.
He's not a strong flier at all so I think he's gone from nestbox to cage, to the pet shop rather quickly.

He's possibly the youngest budgie I've had. Sadie was pretty young as well, but she was a strong flier when I got her- her pet shop had a big aviary for the birds so she got the chance to fly about more.

From the pictures I think Henry is a light green cinnamon budgie.
He is definitely young, but I don't think he is younger than Sadie when you got her. If I recall correctly, she still had melanin on her beak and was heavily barred. There seems to be a little iris development on that first photo and he has a tiny tuft of yellow feathers on the forehead.

She did have melanin on her beak still, yes.
He certainly seems a lot more babiysh but now you've pointed it put, I can see the fine details you've spotted.

He is a baby budgie for sure, he may just be a couple of weeks older than Sadie was when you got her.
I love his cute extra fluffy cheeks!

You are certainly a very precious and handsome baby.

Thanks Deb. I'm thinking about who he's going to live with then he eventually gets moved into big bird room. I'm sure he'll do fine though, when the time comes.
I'm going to try and work on his flying ability before he gets moved in.
