Smile Gender help, please

Ms. Purple head (there's a grape calcium object in their cage) has enough tan on her cere that I'm assuming that she is in fact a she.





This one, however.... I have my guess, but everybody who has seen him/her has a different guess and different reasonings, so help please!







I would also love to know mutations of both. And any guesses as to age.

Thank you!

(And, as usual, I will be making cage changes once I know who goes where!)

You have two beautiful girls there.

Ms Purple head is a sky blue recessive pied.
Your other foster is a cobalt violet, yellow face type II dominant pied opaline budgie.
As for their age, I'd say they are both at the very least 6 - 7 months old. You can get more accurate info on their real age by checking their leg bands.

Lovely little ladies!

I'm so glad you have been able to help these two out. I could not foster budgies. I would end up with a aviary full of budgies. I commend you for your wonderful work, Leah.

The bands would usually have numbers and letters, but the year
the bird was hatched would be the last 2 digits of that year
i.e. 2016 would be 16 (stamped cross-wise on the band).
If you've had them not quite a year their band should have (16)
printed, when they were hatched. They're beauties.

They're beautiful Leah. I especially love the pattern of the pied markings on the blue one.

Thank you, everyone. They certainly are very pretty. They came with the names "Ringo" and "Ruddy". That at least means that I won't get into trouble when I rename them.

Me too on the foster issue, that's how I ended up with 13 cats many years ago.
