Dilly (green) (when he’s bad he’s “Mr.Dillan Pickle”)- absolutely the alpha/ popular/ cheeky/ sassy one of the flock. He loves and cares for all of them equally.

Igloo (white) the youngest and sweetest thing- gets cheeky and night and plays like a toddler when it’s time to go to bed.

Nanana (yellow) most timid, quiet, and skiddish of the bunch- but smart as a whip, and gets so chuffed and doe eyed when you sing to them and say her name.

BLucy (blue) the mother hen. super relaxed about everything. Clumsy. Very affectionate.A talker and squawker- she puts Dilly in his place.

I love them so much. And they love eachother. Proper little family, they are.

Hi! I have a male budgie that just lost his cage mate and I was thinking about getting more when the time is right and I feel like four would be a good number to have how do your birds get along in the cage together? Do you have three males and one female or two of each o couldn't tell on the second one if it was a boy or girl. My Bob has become very cranky since losing his Linda and I'm thinking about getting more cage mates sooner rather than later but I don't know if I should introduce them one at a time or all together. Any advice?

Thanks!
Ahh cool! At first I adopted Blucy and Nanana from a windowless room in a flatshare… I didn’t want to own birds but I had a much better environment for them and couldn’t accept that they would live like that.
They are two females

Then comes Dilly (definitely male) from a pet shop I buys food from. He was part of a bunch of new borns that was meant to be sold with another but was left solo. I couldn’t resist.

everyone told me- DONT DO TRIOS. lies. The three of them got on brilliantly.

igloo was another “No one wants to love me” solo that I watched (for a couple hours) get bullied and ostracised by his cage are at a different pet shop…. On Christmas Eve…: so yup. He was coming home..

Tried to quarantine him but he wasn’t having it- was getting fed by and playing with the other three out of the cage within 20 min of getting him home.

Also- igloo is albino and only 4 months old now- his crest is indiglo so I will have to wait he/she matures and keep observing the behaviour to ascertain it’s sex.

So - 1 male, 2 famale, and 1 they/them.

Igloo looks like a girl :) Contrary to what most people think, it is quite straightforward to tell the gender of albino budgies, especially once they are adults. The only difference is that males keep the immature cere color their whole life (y). Do you have more photos of Igloo (that's such a cute name, by the way)?
Your "FabFour" flock is very sweet!! 💙💙💙💙
