Hello! I've been reading the forums as a non member for a week or so, enjoying so much great info here!! Weve had budgies and cockatiels before over the decades, and its been quite a while since we've had either. We have a nearly 10 year old male canary we've had since he was a baby, so now that we've just moved into our new custom designed retirement home before Christmas, and I am now retired, Ive been just craving getting a bird or two, (or 3 or 4.) lmbo. So we brought Fickle home today, we also have a male baby budgie reserved that will come home in a few weeks, and also reserved one (maybe two?) Cockatiels also ..... that are all being hand fed handraised together right now with a breeder.

I saw an ad for a bunch of gorgeous budgies this week, and got excited to see some babies I absolutely loved the color of .... so we went to visit this afternoon, and it was all I could do to only choose one. But I wanted some one on one time to settle her in and work on handtaming her before the other birds arrive in a few weeks. haha

So this wee bit of heaven is our new baby (female we think?) we've named Fickle!! Well husband chose her name from a list I compiled, I happen to think she is quite a Diva cossed with a smidgeon of firecracker myself lmbo!!! So we'd just like to know if we can be sure if she is a girl or not. Doesn't really matter to us we'd just like to know what to expect (egg laying?). lol

We'd also like to know what her colour mutation is called! Thanks in advance for any info, we are already smitten by this precious wee creature, we were told she is about 4 months old. She settled right in, very calm and curious, chattering away and discovering every inch of her cage and toys etc., and had no trouble or anxiety about sitting on my hand for quite a while to take lots of gotcha day pics. I have yet to figure out how to add her pic as my avatar etc but will hopefully figure that out! :xflove:

Colour wise I'd say Sky blue greywing or Dilute (I can't really distinguish the difference sorry)
And I think possibly girl too.

Yes, I think I'm going to agree although in the second set of photos I questioned it a bit. I see bluish in the first photos though so we'll go with a little lady. Would like another photo in a few weeks though...lol. 4 Months seems about right.
Thanks so much I’ll definitely be posting more pics of her. :swoon:
