    It is harder to tell with juveniles, but the cere on females will be pink or tan while the male's cere will become blue.

My parakeet mother of now 14 just this last summer wow is right but the question is what is weird is that the last set of babys came out with black beaks and black toe nails this I have never saw so does anyone have a reason for why this has happened? My family believes that our finches got her pregnant but I think that is impossible but what do I know. Yes we have our birds fly freely together even the finches.

I have a pair of Budgies, their names are Dayday (female, yellow) and Nytnyt (male, blue). Dayday laid 5 eggs last September and stays on her nest (a 5"x5"x5" wooden box) until now (Oct 11). It is now more than three weeks and I am feeling little worried. Is it still okay that Dayday's eggs still not hatching? What should I do to know if the eggs are in good condition? Please give me some important knowledge on birds. Thank you.

I have two parakeets I bought them at the PETCO two weeks ago. One is blue and her name is BLUEBERRY and the other one is green and his name is Shawn. Both were tame the day they came home. So I felt very lucky. They both are very friendly and chirp a lot and love to watch tv with me and my kids and love to hear the radio and ZUMBA music when I workout. I hope they live to be fourteen. That's how much I love them both and they are both my feathered kids. I wish everyone a lot of happiness with their parakeets.

    That's Great! My mom is letting me get one in a couple of weeks! But as for right now, I have all the supplies from my past bird, Penny, who flew out the door by accident. This time, we're going to get a blue, male. How old are your birds? I am also going to get them at PETCO. Do you think they tame them in every PETCO? I hope so because if I had trained Penny, I bet he would've been easier to find... Well, we still never found him, but we heard him right outside my house. But other then that, anybody have ANY tips?
