Thanks Starling!
He no longer goes on his biting sprees, and actually enjoys getting scritches now! When my fingers are near his face, he will turn his head to the side and puff out his feathers to let me know he's ready for scritch! lol. It's so cute.
He was also very hormonal a few months ago...as in trying to do the naughty on my hand, and regurgitating seed on it, it has subsided now,lol.

So I'm new and everything, but isn't Tiki a girl? His(her?) cere is a light pink? I know that with some mutations it can be different...

What ever he is boy is he cute!!!!! I would love a budgie who looks and acts like that!
Truly beautiful colors!!!

I think that the device screens vary in coloring because I see a purple-blue cere...
Anyhow, Tiki is really cute! It's great that he's letting you give scritches Cosmo only bears with it sometimes

Thanks everyone!
And AbigailGrace, Tiki is most certainly a male From the older pics when he was a bit younger, he had a lilac/pinkish cere,which is indicative of a young male. It is turning a bit more of a blue shade now that he's matured, (which is also indicative of a male).
Your budgie is adorable! <3

Marie, thanks! When Tiki is done receiving scritches, he will let me know by opening his beak like he's trying to bite me,lol

Tiki took a bath and rubbed his wet face all over a portion of his wood playgym,which is dyed with red food coloring. Now,he looks like something out of a horror movie,lol.
On a serious note, should I be worried about this? Food coloring is safe for birds,correct?

Tiki is so adorable. I think it's fine since it was just the food colouring from his jungle gym(which shouldnt be harmful to birds) My bird bubbles did the same thing with his tail now his tail is orange. I originally freaked out cause I thought it was blood ??. I think tiki will be fine.

Does anyone know how to remove the dye from the birds is the real question

Tiki is a neat and tidy looking bird. Poses well for a photo. Has a cute and interesting face.

It looks like Tiki certainly enjoyed his bath!

There is no reason to be concerned about the food dye (it is non-toxic) on his feathers. It will wear off the feathers over time just like it does when you get it on your hands.

If it is a really huge concern to you, you can use a cotton swab dampened with Renu contact lens solution to gently wipe the feathers with the dye on them. The solution will dilute and dissolve the dye to wipe it away.
