Default My first budgie!

Hey everybody! I just got my first budgie! It's white, pale yellow, and light blue. I'll post pictures later when it has settled in. I think it's a young female because it's cere is pink, but I think there is some white around the nostrils. I'm not completely sure. I'm really excited! I want to know about your guys' experience getting your very first budgie. Please comment your feelings when you first got one and why you decided to get one.

Hi! to Talk Budgies and congratulations on your new arrival!

https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...ur-budgie.html




Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles 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.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

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.

Congratulations on your new arrival! It's always exciting when you bring a new budgie friend into your home

If the cere is a clear, pearly pink, you most likely have a young male! However, reading through the links provided above will help you to confirm that; you can also post photos once s/he starts to settle in.

If you have any questions after reviewing the links above, let us know! Now that you have your new friend, all the research you've done so far surely will pay off

I originally wanted a parrot, I realised I wasn't ready for that commitment, and absolutely fell in love with researching all about budgies. I was obsessed, and spent all my free time for a few months learning lots about these adorable little birds, much like you did

Unfortunately, I missed the bit about not buying from big-box pet stores, so I got my little girl from PetCo, but it was love at first sight! I had all these silly expectations, like "Oh, I want a male! A violet cobalt male!" but all of that flew out the window when I saw my Mallorn. She was the only budgie in the enclosure who seemed to see me, and when she walked up to the glass and looked at me curiously, I realised she definitely was my budgie!

I've had her for five years, and she and I are now inseparable. It's been a crazy five years, (no doubt!) with plenty of mischief, frustrations, joys, triumphs, and scares, just like all budgie owners experience.

So, I wish you luck with your own budgie journey, and I look forward to meeting him/her soon!

Congratulations on your new little friend!
You have beautiful sky blue yellow face greywing budgie. From the photos it seems the cere had more of pale whitish colour, if that is the case, you have a young female.
I couldn't take a better look because there was a countdown on the photos and they became unavailable. I have never seen that feature on Photobucket.

I think the feature is called fade photo or something like that. It gave me the option on the app. Thank you for the information! I thought it was a girl, and now I feel more confident about saying that. Thank you so much!
