Hi there! I have 2 new budgies. They are settling in very well and have a comfortable home. After doing lots of research I am wondering if one of them is a rainbow budgie? His colouring seems to be turquois
I’d love to know anything about them both if anyone has any information on what types of budgies they are :)

I’ve also removed the mirror as I have read it is not good for them.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Your babies are beautiful, StarlingWings will be able to tell you the specifics of their mutations. In one picture it looks like one is sitting on a towel or something similar, I would remove that, their nails may get caught in the loops and if they start picking at it they could ingest some of the fiber and that may lead to serious health issues.

Thank you for the reply! They are so sweet :)
Oh yes, I will definitely make sure nothing like that is in the cage. It’s a sock to keep him warm after his bath as he likes to lay down. I will make sure to find something more suitable for him though as I want to keep these little guys safe.
Thank you for the suggestion :)

Hi, Welcome to Talk Budgies!

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being

Your budgies are adorable! 💙💚

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