Or would only a male and female preen and kiss each other ,that could help me determine weather or not the younger budgie is a male or female.I hope someome can help thank you.

    Males can be very affectionate to eachother.

    I think budgies are secure in their sexuality, and have no qualms about preening and kissing the same sex in public.

    You won't be able to tell his sex until he is about 1 year for sure. You tell by the color of their cere- and that may change back and fourth sevral times before it settles down

    Yes, males will preen and feed each other.

    no idea, though all the budgies I've had excepting one have changed back and fourth.

    Perhaps puberty and hormonal fluxuations?

    Thanks for the response.

    I've only ever had males, but I have never seen this back and forth change. Strange stuff...
