    Pictures Guessing age/gender of cockatiel?

    Baby budgie underdeveloped?

    So I have had my budgie who I suspect is a male, for about a month, and he's around 2 months old but can't fly and has barely any wings or tail. I think he will be fine, just a late bloomer, but I want to make sure that he will be ok. Photo is attatched. Thankyou
