I just got a new budgie for my son yesterday. His/her name is Zach (my son wanted a boy ). I was hoping for some help sexing him/her, and also determining what colour mutation s/he is.
I'm guessing he's a boy (the ceres is dark purple with lighter blue around the nostrils, and he sings quite nicely with no angry budgie sounds), and as for colour I'm guessing grey opaline spangle. But you guys know lots more than me, so please let me know what you think!
Zach is definitely a beautiful male budgie!
Congratulations on your wonderful new addition.
I think the very best advice anyone can offer is for you to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.
I'm looking forward to hearing all about your budgie and hopefully seeing some pictures soon!!
