Default Feathers at the bottom of the cage

I just realized when cleaning the room there is small white feathers and bigger colored ones at the bottom of the cage. I already saw them picking it. Is this normal?

Here is some pictures

No need to worry. Birds go through a moult every 6-12 months. During this time, their old feathers will fall out and new ones will come in. You shouldn't see any bald patches on your budgies as the feathers are replaced gradually instead of all at once, allowing the budgie to keep its ability to fly.

Correct. There are spots under the wings where you will see bald spots.

You're welcome. It sounds like they're settling in well so hopefully tonight they'll have a great, full nights sleep. I meant to ask too, did you get them a variety of toys? I know they currently have a small cage so toys will really help them to not get bored. You can have a few in the cage, then when you think they're bored with those, swap them for some others (& keep rotating them as they get bored).

I only got them a bell and they are not interacting with it. I don't know but I am trying to observe the type of tree in our backyard.

If possible, see if your local variety stores or pet stores have some small bird toys. They tend to like toys that make noise, and toys they can climb on (like rings). It's not recommended to give them mirrors though.

I'm not an expert on identifying plants or trees, but I'll check out the pics you've put up on your new thread and see if I can be of any help.

Looks like molting has begun. If you look in the List of Stickies I gave you, you will see information on molting. It is a normal process with birds, and budgies can molt up to several times per year.
