First of all let me introduce myself as I am new to this forum. My name is Kasper and I am 26 years old and live in Birchgrove (Sydney). I think that's enough, otherwise feel free to ask.
Last night I got two 8 week old budgies from a friend whose budgies just had their first chicks. The first night they were very quite and besides a bit of eating and the occasional chirp they sat together. However now that they've had one day to settle in they have become much more confident. They're drinking and eating both seed mix and pellets (which the breeder never tried) and they will even eat millet of my hand.
Anyway, back on topic. My friend believes that they are both male, however I have a suspicion that I might have a male and a female (budgie 2). Your opinions on gender (and mutations) would be greatly appreciated.
