After Blizzard passed away, I have missed having two budgies chirping and playing together all day.

So now, three months later, I have brought home Pickle! He is half English budgie and half regular budgie. He hatched on 12/20/20 and just came home yesterday. Right now he is in quarantine, but he can hear Kiwi and they’re already tweeting back and forth to each other :D

The store he came from allows their babies to learn to fly before clipping so luckily even with his clipped wings he can fly very well! He still needs to practice his landings though :roflmao:

If anyone could confirm that he is a male and what his mutation is, that would be great! I’m thinking that he’s a spangle?
(I included a pic of his vent because I was wondering why the area is blue)
(Btw the red spots on his head and tail were to tell him apart from other babies at the store)

Meet Pickle! :budgie4:

Oh how exciting!!! Welcome pickle :loveshower:
I would assume because cere is deep blue like that he’s a boy, I could be wrong if it was a female you would see white around the nostrils themselves.
Either way he is cute as a button. And looks like conure with his red spots lol had me fooled at first 10/10 lol

I hope things go well too! Hopefully they will live in the same cage together eventually, maybe he will even learn some words from Kiwi like Blizzard did :laugh:

How old is s/he?
He’s almost 11 weeks old now, his hatchdate was 12/20/20

His cere seems too purple now to be a female and he doesn’t have any white nostril rings so seems like a male to me.
