How can you tell she's a girl?

Success this evening! After holding a handful of millet close to her she ate out of my hand no flapping about. When I brought more millet she wasn't interested but as I pressed on her chest slightly she stepped into my hand and sat falling asleep for a half hour, I moved my hand slowly around the cage every now and again, she still didn't budge! What should I do now apart from repeat the process?

You can tell she is female as she has white on her cere.

By comparison, here is Skye, a male budgie and comparing it to yours you should be able to see a difference.



Congratulations. I'd keep trying the same thing for a few days and see how you go.

Hello and welcome to the forums!

I agree that taking it slow and waiting until she's ready will help you with bonding. Trust is built, not bought

Oh, and she's definitely a beautiful girl! If you want a more "girly" name, what about Rockette?

You can tell because the area around her nostrils (the cere) is whitish and pale blue, as it is in all young females. Young males have pink or purplish ceres which eventually turn the characteristic royal blue

It's great to have you with us and if you have any other questions please be sure to ask as we'd love to help!
