    Boy or a Girl? how old do you think he/she is?

    Looking for any help on identifying the sex and age. Thanks!!

    Also, we've had the budgie for a month and it doesn't play. It will sing while the TV is on and wil make calls here/there. It'll eat a millet from my head and seeds occassionally, however, it won't let me near it other than that. He/She seems like a timid budgie and not that playful. Is it too early to tell? Just want to make sure he/She is happy. My son spends hours with him/her, talking and listening to music/ shows.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello! Because of the blue on your budgie's beak, I would say he's a boy! I would also say he is likely an adult based on his head and chest markings. Check this out for reference:

    As for his behaviour, that's pretty normal. It took my budgies around a month or so to get fully used to their environment and start playing and chirping. It's great that your son talks to him! That will help him get used to his voice and trust him. They also love music and background noise, so good job with that as well!

    Kiwi is super cute by the way! I love the name. Have a great day!

    Definitely a mature male.
