Does he have any Iris rings? i cant tell in the pictures

but Just by going by the Bars on his head I'd say at least 6 months old but no older then 8 months old

if he has Iris rings - what color are they?

here's a chart to go by to guess the age with the iris color

http://www.***************/i_iris1.jpg
All Black eyes - 0-4 months

http://www.***************/i_iris2.jpg
Very Dark Iris 4-6 Months

http://www.***************/i_iris3.jpg
Medium Grey Irises 6-8 months

http://www.***************/i_iris4.jpg

Light Iris 8 months and Older

EYES - In most varieties, young budgies' eyes will be all black. As they get older, the iris gradually lightens to very light grey/brown. A budgie with a completely black eye is probably under 4 months old. A budgie with a dark grey iris is probably 4-8 months old. A budgie with a light grey or brown iris is probably older than 8 months. EXCEPTIONS:
Lutino/Albino, Lacewing, Fallow - At all ages these red-eyed varieties always have a light colored (pink) iris.
Recessive Pied, Dark-Eyed Clear - These varieties always have dark plum eyes which do not change with age.
