She's very pretty but where did you get the info that she is 13-14 weeks old, she appears to be older than that.
Thanks, Cody. From the breeder, but she did say that was an estimate... How old (roughly) would you say she is?She's very pretty but where did you get the info that she is 13-14 weeks old, she appears to be older than that.
I disagree about breaking the skin 😬 , I have had it happen more than once having to medicate one of my hens.As others have determined, she is female. You will notice as she gets tamer that she will be quite high strung as compared to male budgies, at least that's what I have found. And oh yes, she will bite HARD when she gets mad! (Don't worry, budgies can't break the skin.) Try and ignore her if she bites. One of the videos I'm going to post is Jeffery and I 'rough housing', and you'll see his (her) personality clearly! However if you could bond with her as a single budgie she will keep her temper in check as does my Jeffery......
Thank you so much, FaeryBee! Sorry I hadn't responded earlier, I've been ill with Covid, but I took your advice - I've trimmed back the fringe on that knot as much as I can. They also had a swing in that cage which came with a knotted rope tied around the base - I've left them the swing, but cut off the rope.Merry and Pippin are both lovely budgies.
I would, however, recommend you trim the string fringe on that toy back to no more than 1/2".
