Talking Two New Babies!

These are my new babies. I hope to put them in with Charlie after quarantine and letting them bond. They don't have names yet, and I was wondering about their mutations. They are both from a breeder, but different parents. The male is (obviously) younger, and a total sweetie. The female is going to take a little more work, but I'm sure with time she will be great! they get along great with each other so far. Any name ideas are greatly appreciated!

Beautiful coloring for both of your new 'babies'! Does one of them have scaly mites or some issue on the face near her eye? That last photo looks like something might be up.. but it could just be me or the lighting or something.. At any rate, they are both lovely!

His feathers are still coming in on his face. He has pin feathers around his mouth and some around his eyes. If it does not improve over the next week it will be addressed at the vet.

Those are lovely babies, congratulations!

I think the girl looks like a Stella and the little boy looks like a Kip!

Meanwhile, I would read this thread--three budgies of different genders in a cage is usually not recommended because two could bond and leave the other one out

I would say that they are sure to have fun playing all together, but should be caged separately, with Charlie in his own cage and the other two sharing one

Good luck! I can't wait to hear more of them

Congratulations on your two lovely new budgies!

I agree with Star.
Housing three budgies in one cage is often problematic and more so when they are different genders. Even when you have three of the same gender there are often problems because two birds generally bond leaving the third as the "third wheel" or even bullying it.

After quarantine has ended, housing the two new budgies in one cage and Charlie in another - with supervised out of cage time together would be my recommendation.

Congratulations on your latest arrivals!

Your female I think is a cobalt violet yellow face type II cinnamon opaline budgie.
Your male is also a yellow face type II cobalt violet like the female, only he is a recessive pied. He is likely opaline too or even greywing, but the lack of markings make it difficult to tell for sure.

I had a breeder take a second look at Benji (the male) for scale face mites, and he said that it looked highly unlikely because of the pin feathers, and that it looked like something the mother may have done by over-grooming him. He suggested to rub coconut oil around his beak and cere just in case. They are both doing great, and Benji is acting like he has spent his whole life in the cage with Mabel (the female). She is still really nervous, but it seems like Benji's presence is really helping her adjust. I will probably keep Benji and Mabel in the new cage and put Charlie's cage on top once quarantine is over. Will it confuse them if they can hear but not see each other??
