Hello :)

from a breeder, but he keep saying he is few months
If the breeder is professional, they will have the hatch date noted somewhere so instead of asking how old, ask when the hatch date is.

Looking at this bird, they are anywhere between 6 and 10 or 12 weeks. The black on the beak will slowly fade as they get older and between 5-9 months old they will moult and the line on the brow will become promenent.

Going off the middle picture what seems to be the most recent, I'd say around 10 weeks old. So the breeder saying "a few months" is correct, but like I said before, asking for the "hatch date" will give you an exact age.

he said he was a peach face.
Yes, this bird is a Peach faced lovebird (Agapornis Roseicollis). :vlb2:
