Re: Unexpectadly out of my depth,..

Those are great, very cute bird Red! I don't know much about the iris thing that was mentioned...to me (I don't own a budgie anymore, and I'm no expert) the cere looks bluish/purplish, so that would indicate male. However, if this is a very young bird, that may change...I will allow the budgie owners/experts to correct or clarify this for you.

Re: Unexpectadly out of my depth,..

He is supposed to be a baby, just out of the nest. He is supposed to be hand reared and wing clipped.
He is very very quiet. No fear of anything and his wing is certainly clipped.
I have yet to hear a single chirp out him yet, but I will let him settle down.
HELP HELP HELP. Debbie want him to live outside,...in the cold. Its bloody cold here in the Mornings (Like 2 degrees Celsius). Surely that would kill a baby bird?
I in a tricky spot here as the guy next door has 20 or so small birds in an aviary next door, so my argument is looking weak. I need back up here from experts to keep the bird inside till the weather improves.
Edit; HE JUST CHIRPED AND MOVED.
2ND EDIT; HE IS ON THE BOTTOM OF HIS CAGE, EATING

Put your foot down Red ... Be a man! Gilligan stays inside until it gets warmer! Don't let Debbie push you around!

Re: Unexpectadly out of my depth,..

My question to you:
How could anyone make this baby live outside in the cold?

Please petition my wife and stop this travesty of justice.

Re: Unexpectadly out of my depth,..

OMG Gilligan is so cute! Yep he's a young little boy. Oh i forgot to add. Don't get a round cage. Bird's feel insecure in round cages. They need corners. dome tops are fine. as long as they're corners. Rectangle/square cages are best.
He looks half english. He looks normal blue dilute opaline im no pro at mutations though. if you really want to know i can ask someone from another forum.

Re: Unexpectadly out of my depth,..

He is a cutie, I'm glad he is finally moving around and comfortable. He should inside because it is too cold. You could tell Debbie that the birds in the aviary have each other to keep themselves warm, so this little guy would freeze all by himself. He'll be happier indoors and get better socialized being able to see you guys all the time. Hope that helps!

Re: Unexpectadly out of my depth,..

eeek Meghan I don't want to rub you up the wrong way but...
- Red, do your research on grit, just because its one of those controversial matters, I believe it should be there and Pete certainly has it.
- I'm not convinced hes a boy. I'll get Petes baby photo up after work and you'll see why (shes a female.)

Sorry! I know these forums are a space for our opinions but I still feel bad disagreeing with anyone
