Default My new budgie, Cosmo!

Hi!

I'm new around here, and I just got a budgie for the first time and it's name is Cosmo! I believe he is around 8 months old and I got him from PetSmart. He is special because he tamed to me in just 1 week, and perches on my shoulder comfortably even when I walk around the house. I was very surprised and thankful I got the right one.

Anyway, could anyone tell me if its a boy or a girl? I think it is a boy, but I'm not sure.

Thanks,
HBxNinja

Welcome to the forums and the ever exciting world of budgie ownership!
You have certainly come to the right place as you will find al you need to know on budgie care here.
Since you are new to budgies, 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 more familiar with the species.
Be sure to pay extra attention to the Diet and Nutrition as well as the Taming and Bonding sections.

Your little Cosmo is a male and he is much younger, by looking at him I'd say he is 3 and a half months old.
It's good to know that you are having such a good start with Cosmo, it's not very common for a recently purchased budgie to be so trusting and friendly from the get-go.
Best of luck with him!

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.

Hi there and to the forums!

Cosmo is very handsome

He is precious and I'm glad that already you have developed a good relationship with him. However, keep in mind that as he gets more settled in, he may not respond as well to you. This is normal--just continue to be consistent and work with him at his own pace and he soon will continue to build trust in you.

Be sure to read through the links provided above as they will be of great help to you with your little boy!

If you have any questions afterwards, please do ask as we'd love to help!

I hope to see you around!

Welcome to you and Cosmo. My first budgie Frankie (thus my user name) was from a pet store and it was so rewarding when he warmed to me and first stood on my arm so I get how you feel totally.

He is a darling. Here's to many joyful times of bonding ahead. He will give you many smiles and reasons to be happy. These little babies steal your heart away.
