to Talk Budgies!

I cannot ascertain the bird's gender because the thumbnail photo does not enlarge on my computer. Would you please post some more photos? Thanks!

Edit: The thumbnail enlarged on Internet Explorer but not Mozilla Firefox. His cere appears to be a deep blue color, which indicates he is male. He's lovely.

To be sure, I would like to see another photo taken in natural lighting, though. No flash photography. Thanks!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

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:
https://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/17...otobucket.html

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!

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.

Welcome to the forums and the ever exciting world of budgie ownership!
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 more familiar with the species.
Be sure to pay extra attention to the Diet and Nutrition as well as the Taming and Bonding sections of Talk Budgies.

Despite the flash from the photo, it's clear that you have a young male budgie there. There cere has a nice and deep purplish colour.
By looking at him, it seems your budgie's cere is in the process of maturing to the royal blue colour, I'd say by now that your budgie is 5 and a half months old.

Best of luck with your new budgie friend!

If he's calmed down now, then leave them right where they are. It will take him a few days to get used to the new items in his cage.

If the budgie is still going "crazy", then take the swing and perch back out of the cage and put them outside the cage where the budgie can see them.

Leave them outside the cage for a few days and then try again. Be sure you move slowly and carefully at all times and talk gently and reassuring to the budgie whenever doing anything in or near the cage.

In the future, always place new items outside the cage for a few days so the budgie can see the items and become used to them before introducing them into his cage.
It's also best to introduce new items in the morning so the budgie will have the full day to get used to having them in the cage before he needs to settle for the night.

Best wishes!
