8 Week Old Cock Or Hen?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Below are some photographs I took of my 8 week old budgie. I bought it a week ago from Bird City and am going through the taming process now!

The guy in the shop said it is probably a hen, can you please confirm this for me?

It looks like its startings its first moult so I'd say its around 3 months of age. A picture of the eyes would be good.

Okay thanks!

 

I thought it might have been too young to be molting yet! :wacko: The guy at the shop would have known that too!!

 

I've had 2 baby budgies before but that was a few years ago so I couldn't remember.

 

Thanks again!

agree'd with everyone, at least 3 month's old and you can visibly see the brown resemblance in the cere, so its a hen for sure :wacko:

Totally a hen, and again totally around the 3-4 month mark age-wise :blink:

 

Pet shop owners will tell you birds are babies if you are looking for babies, and they will tell you birds are old enough to breed if you say you are looking for breeding birds. They will tell you whatever will sell it to you :P

Thanks for your help guys.

 

Oh well, I don't mind that she is a bit older. She(Mokey) is beginning to respond to the taming sessions.

 

:D
