I had no intention of getting a second budgie, but I was in my breeders shop picking up bird feed and this little guy was staring up at me. I say guy, i'm pretty sure its a boy, but not certain. Hopefully he will make a good little brother for Branch. Anyway, I knew I had the empty vision cage at home so I made the impulse purchase. I was told he is 8 weeks old, not an english so I know he will be smaller than Branch. When I got him home, I immediately got to work setting up the vision for him in a different room. They know each other are in the house though because they whistle to each other even with the doors closed.
Twig is super friendly, hoping up on my finger at the shop to go in the transport cage. I fully intended to leave him alone for a couple of weeks to settle in, but when I got up this morning and uncovered his cage, he came running up and climbed to the door. When I opened it, thinking he would fly to a perch to get away, he came right out onto my finger. Pictures below.
Any suggestions on sex and color? I am terrible figuring out colors, Sky Blue...?
Edit, forgot to add, he weighed in at 30 grams yesterday when I brought him home and 33 this afternoon with most of his seed/pellet mix gone, well mostly the seed gone the pellets were in the pan.
Looking scared in his cage last night
Sleeping before i covered the cage
