Default First day home!

I'm undecided about names since I'm not 100% sure what their sexes are yet. They are very young, the violet hatched on Jan 7 the other Jan 12...seems kind of young to me, but the breeder said they were eating & perching so they were ready (?) I was worried they would be traumatized and too scared to eat at first but they found the seed silo and water right away and dug in -they even ate some veggies! Yay!

Great! Looks like you’ll have two hearty eaters who aren’t picky. That’s always nice.

EDIT: Sorry, when I answered yesterday, I failed to see the age you posted. I agree with the others who pointed out that these budgies are ideally too young to go home. You’re fortunate that they’re eating. Keep an eye on them. Wishing all the best.

they do look to young just keep an eye on them just make sure there not to many toys or circle chain toys as young birds are adventures, and i wouldn't take the birds out of the cage quite yet but still handle them daily as they get use to you, with the name try a unisex name like Coco, Domino hope this helps you

Breeders should not release budgies to new owners until the birds are a minimum of 8 weeks old.
The budgies need that time with their parents to be socialized and learn to "be budgies".
This is important for their emotional development.
Additionally, when a budgie is separated too young, even though it may be eating and perching at that time, it can sometimes "regress" and need supplemental feeding.

Your little ones are very cute and I with you and them all the best.

Thank you...I made a point of asking the breeder (several times in fact) before picking them up if they may be too young but she assured me they were ready to leave...so far they seem ok, both are eating & drinking and moving around the cage, perching and chirping. Hopefully they will be able to learn from Rumer & Scout once they are out of quarantine
