Baby Budgies - Gender Help

4 posts in this topic

Hi All,

 

My first ever baby budgies are almost 6 weeks old now and am I was hoping someone could confirm their genders?

 

Thanks, much appreciated :)

 

Budgie 1 (female?)

The English budgie has such a lovely temperament, is very placid, and happy to sit on my finger and get head scratches all day; Budgies 1 & 2 are absolute biting machines and will not get off my hand when I change their food and clean their cage; Budgie 3 is quite placid and happy to be scratched on the head; and Budgie 4 is somewhere in between.

 

They all have such different little personalities!

Beautiful looking babies, I have a feeling all are males but the first 2 have that touch of white around the nostrils that could mean female. I'm going with all males, it'll be interesting to see in a couple of weeks

Thanks :)

 

The touch of white around the nostrils of budgies 1 & 2 is why I am a bit confused about their gender and thought maybe female.

 

That and the fact they are such 'biting machines' made me think female, though the biting may just be a baby budgie thing and not a gender thing?

 

Those two even tried to attack my phone camera when I took the photos and were literally hanging off the front of it. lol. I should have posted those photos ;)

 

The other three baby budgies are much more laid back and happy to be handled.

 

Will post some more pictures in a week or so and see if the genders are any clearer then.

The biting thing does often indicate females, but not necessarily. I see all male budgies in your photos. :)
