Default Three baby budgies

It's been a wild (expensive and time consuming!) ride, but I am so proud of my three babies, I wanted to show them off.

The first shot is of the three naked amigos at 2 weeks old, and the last two shots are what they looked like a couple of nights ago. I believe there are two blue spangles (like their mom) and one albino. They will be 4 weeks old this weekend.

I'm intending to keep all three, but they have no names yet because I can't yet tell their genders (which I understand might need a vet to tell the albino one).

They're SO adorable. I can hardly wait to start working with them to tame them, but I'm kind of holding back until their parents have them weaned.

They are absolutely adorable! Congratulations on the babies, they're precious!

Actually, you don't need a vet to tell the gender of the albino, since you know the parents. If neither of her parents were albino, then she is a girl and her father was split for the ino gene Since Ino is a sex-linked gene, it's relatively easy to tell the gender of ino chicks, given that the parentage is known.

Thanks!!!

I thought the two blue ones (who I refer to as "the boys") were identical, but I finally got a good picture of the two together.

I think one is a white-faced and one is yellow-faced.

Does that look right? I hope so, because they are otherwise impossible to tell apart!

Any thoughts on whether the "boys" are boys or girls?


Thanks!!!

I can't see the picture well enough since it is a thumbnail attachment (even enlarging it) to be able to tell for sure.

For that reason, it's always best to post full sized pictures.
To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

From the little I can see - I believe the one on the left is male and the one on the right may be female. Having a closeup picture of their ceres taken in natural light would be helpful.

Best wishes!

No worries!

The baby on the left is a male and the one on the right is a female!
