Default Nico, the recessive pied?

I've had him for 4 days..
How old do you think Nico is? and is he really a recessive pied?
He was the same size as the full grown budgies with full caps, bigger than the other babies(greens, blues), but he still has his baby bars..... deep black eyes, pink cere with the tiniest tinge of purple.

He's pretty flighty, tries to run away from my hand but he does step up, only when he wants to.

I tried taming him by holding him for 30 minutes but all he does is bite me, then eventually will calm down.. after those sessions he did start stepping up on my finger though. probably over did it too soon, but I'm going to start over from square one.. no more trying to hold him... well I do need to clip his wings. he enjoyed the car ride home.. was flying, singing, and eating in his cage during the whole ride.

i've read different things on here and on other forums that suggest some pied birds don't lose their baby bars at all as they age.. or they lose it a lot later than after the first molt at 4ish months. what do you guys think? oh yeah, I also had to trim his nails.. they were freakishly long.. freddy budgie cruger long.. his beak is sort of long too.. makes me think he's a lot older than 3-4 months... maybe that's why he is so flighty?

I sadly lost the most precious budgie last week. a clearflight blue/grey.. he was hoping on my hand in 2 days to eat millet, even nibbled through my fingers to where he would lose some millet. he was hopping out of the cage to go on my hand and look for millet. after he hoped back in the cage he would hang out on the front of the bars trying to get my attention. he would have been hand tamed pretty quickly. On the 3rd day I had him, he started acting strange and I had to get to work so I couldn't supervise him and when I came back home he was dead.

I did some Research on the web and here's what i got:
Adult male recessive pieds have purple ceres. Adult female recessive pieds have the normal white/tan/brown ceres. Recessive pieds in general have mostly clear feathers on most area except the Rump, Which remains there original body Color. The feathers on the head are mostly clear except sometimes for patches near the eyes and top of the head.
The recessive pied budgie's eyes are dark plum colored and never lighten with age; they always stay dark. This is how you can be sure a pied is recessive pied, since the dominant pied's eyes lighten normally with maturity

So sorry to hear about your little precious one. Rest in peace, sweet baby

Yes, he's a very pretty recessive pied. Try millet training. (See the Training & Bonding forums.)

dont clip his wings please its there nature to fly you shouldnt take away his flight birds are born to fly not walk everywhere when trying to tame do it inside the cage and encourage him with millet if you plan to take away his wings then i advise you to get a pet rat instead of a bird.
please think about this
