Here Secondo is enjoying some celery leaves. He is a Yellow faced Recessive Pied budgie (parakeet). He is about two years old and Uno's brother. By thier names you can tell Uno hatched first, and Secondo second. These names arent my most imaginative, but using Italian makes them sound like they are.
At a glance the two look very similar, but the photo below shows you how to tell them apart. Uno's cere* has a rough texture and is very brown which shows she is a girl. All girl budgies have cere's like this, no matter what variety of budgie they are. But boy recessive pied budgies are different. Secondo's cere is smooth and pinkish, sometimes with a blush of bluey-purple. If Secondo were a 'normal' budgie, his cere would be bright blue.
Secondo also has fewer black dots around his throat, and the last way to tell these two apart: Goliath doesnt spend all day sitting next to Secondo!
He's a very laid back happy chappy that gets along great with anyone. Secondo doesnt have a girlfriend yet, and its about time I found someone for him. I think he'd be a great mate for the right gal.
He does spend alot of time preening his pretty pink feet which is probally his only quirk. His favouite treat is sprouted wheat, with corn kernels as a close second.
* cere: (pronounced 'sear') The fleshy bit above a birds beak.
