Hi what’s the gender of my budgies? I believe that the green one is a male, but let me know if I’m wrong. And not sure about the white one.

The white budgie is female. The green budgie is male.

When you have mixed genders, it is very important to do everything necessary to prevent breeding.
Budgies are much healthier and happier when they are never bred.

The fabric toy you have in the cage is not recommended for use with your birds.

I recommend you remove the plastic dowel perches in the cage and replace them with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

The Truth about GRIT

The plastic wrap surrounding the cage is not safe, if the budgies chew on that, it will cause crop impaction.
Additionally, the bell on the hanging toy looks as if it may be corroding. If so, please replace it for your birds' safety.
I suggest you replace the plastic bag in the bottom of the cage with white paper toweling, white craft paper or packing paper (aka blank newsprint)

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and all of the Stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
