Hello budgie buddies!

Okay, so after reading about how a budgie's high energy and persistent nagging for a friend could annoy a cockatiel, I decided to go ahead and get a third bird. My goal was to get a boy, but I think I may have accidentally gotten a girl. She is totally quarantined in Helios' old cage and I will be giving her a long-term treatment since I got her a different Petco.

She is so gorgeous and looks like a storm, I couldn't pass her up with how bright and sunny Helios is, they will look gorgeous together. While she is very cute, she wants zero part of me, but wasn't just petrified on the bottom of her cage and did explore a good bit. I didn't realize how calm Helios was to warm up to me, while she wants NO part of me even near her cage right now. It's okay, Im patient and happy with my flock. No more for me. I have my perfect trio; The sun, moon, and sky. and in like two months it will be nice having them all in my office with me.

So since I think I flubbed up and got a girl I've been calling her Selene, but would much rather have a boy for hormonal reasons. Can you guys help me out here? Also any input on age? I am guessing younger than 4 months at least yeah?

Thank you!!

Thank you for your response!
Helios is also clipped from the store, but he can still get some decent height and carry himself along. She on the other hand can barely get herself more than 6 inches up, I think they really did a number on her wings. So here's to hoping she is very young and will molt at some point in the next few months. I can't wait to see her zipping around 馃グ

She is soooo cute!

Why on earth would the pet store clip their wings??? :oops::mad:
Thank you! This picture doesn't quite show her true color, but her tummy has a bit of a bluish tint that really made her stand out for me. I was thinking there was a tiiiint of purple on the cere when i picked her out and my gut said boy, compared to the others in her tank. But once I got her home I was like...oh no I think its a girl lol

is that weird?? All three of my birds are clipped from the store/breeder. I was told it was so they don't get hurt if they happen to get out and fly into anything dangerous. I was thinking every bird comes clipped and then flies after their next molt.
