PeeWee is beautiful! However, she is not cinnamon. A brownish cast on yellow-based budgies is normal as their feathers reflect a bit of yellow mixed in with the greyish black of their wing markings, making them appear dark brown in some cases. Cinnamon budgies have 20-40% body color dilution like opaline budgies do and their markings are noticeably light brown!

They are both adorable.

Thank you so much. I love all of my birds very much. So much company since the passing of the last of my 4 wiener dogs. They are such little clowns. They are very spoiled. I, too, thought her feathers would darken as she grew. I just was not sure. She was a freebie when I purchased Sky as PeeWee was being picked on due to her size. Always kicked out of the feed bowl.She had a stump tail. I am thankful she is healthy and thriving along with the rest of the flock.

Thank you again for your help.

NO, they like to chew on them. They are Balsa. I am a retired Vet Tech of large and small animals for over 30+ years. I raised enough chickens and operated on bumblefoot myself, fix splayed legs. Processed my own chickens, cattle and pigs and lambs, even goats. My lil birds are fine
I trim their nails myself. PeeWee can't fly she uses those to jump hop I have them on the outside of my cages as well so she can hop up to the top of the cage for her observation curiosity. Sky is the same, when they are older I will remove them. Thank you for your input.

Keep in mind that the majority of members on here are novices and we have no way of knowing someone’s experience unless they specifically say so. Even I who has worked in a wood shop for over five years did not look at that photo and immediately recognize them as balsa wood.

Thank you for clarifying :)

It was not my intention to spout off. I just rarely see a cage post without some "expert" spouting off about things. I was told (on another site) my half moon water bowls would trap and kill my birds. I was told my UV lights should be 10" above the cage because that is what some guys Vet recommended. THEY ARE NOT UV LIGHTS. sO i SINCERELY APOLOGIZE to anyone I ticked off.
