    Age and gender

    Hello Guys,
    These are my first budgies, I am wondering if you can confirm they are male and female and approximatley how old are they and if they are ready to mate and breed

    Awwww!! They are soo precious and beautiful. In my view, they are quite young. I do not think they are quite a year old. Too me, the blue cere, which is right above the beak, on the powder blue budgie indicates a male. And the yellow\green budgie has an ivory color cere, which indicates a female.

    As they get to be about 9-12 months old you will notice hormonal behavior, such as mating. And the female's cere will become crusty brown. Then, the hen could lay eggs.

    We will welcome your updates anytime. You will love the journey with them!! I love budgies, and have homed them for many years.
