Default Hello!

Hello there!

I have recently obtained two very cute little budgies and was wondering if anyone could hazard a guess to what gender and mutations they are?

Budgie 1



Budgie 2



Looking forward to snooping around the forums!

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.

Your two new budgies are absolutely adorable! And I can indeed hazard a lot of guesses.

The cutie on the first two pics is a beautiful young female, she is a sky blue full body colour greywing opaline budgie.

Your other young one is a male, he is a cobalt blue full body colour greywing budgie.

I can also tell you by looking at them that they are both very young and since you got them at such an early age, they must be recently weaned.
I'd say they have not yet reached two months of age.
Make sure they are both eating well their food, you can supplement their diet with egg food, this is an easy food for them to eat and very nutritious.
For more detailed info, check the Diet and Nutrition section of Talk Budgies.

Since they are both about the same age and have such similar colours and characteristics, I will also tell you that it's very likely they siblings from the same clutch.

Thanks for the welcomes!

Its nice to know what mutations they are and their genders (although i think they're cute regardless of that ).

The sites just full of information, I hope to get to know this place better I'll keep in mind the point about eggs (kinda funny that they're eating eggs hmm? well it wouldn't be budgie eggs at least )

As for names.... i don't know! Anyone have any suggestions? (I do have an urge to call one of them Kiki though...)

Hello and to the forums!

Aluz has given you great information on gender, age, and mutation!

They're beautiful, really, and I hope to see lots more of them around here.

As for names, I can think of a few:

For the girl:
Baila
Kiki (is really cute!)
Snowdrop
Starfire
Nessa

For the boy:
Kipper (KIKI AND KIPPER )
Chester
Atlas
Royal
Zeru

If you'd like more ideas, feel free to check out this thread for more! https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...s.html#2807010

Hope to see you around and it's great to have you with us

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I really like Kiki and Kipper, but have decided Jiji for the boy already.
HOWEVER, I had originally wanted to dabble in breeding when they get old enough... but they're highly likely to be siblings, so I'd probably pair Kiki with a rainbow.... who will probably be called Kipper!
(There's still a long time to go until that! )

Thanks for the great name suggestions!

That's cute, too! Like the cat and the witch in the movie "Kiki's Delivery Service"
