Today I was bored so I decided I was going to go look for a camera to buy but I had no luck finding the one I want .So I just decided to go look around at the other stores and I went to our pet store (big mistake for me) I told myself I wasn't going to buy any more birds and I kept telling myself that .I have no idea what went wrong ... one minute I was just talking to the owner and a couple minutes later I was paying for a new tiel...So I have come to the conclusion that I was either hypnotized into buying it or I have ABSOLUTELY no self control. I think it's a whiteface male .I'll post pictures whenever I find that camera....

Awww! I know the feeling..They do tend to hypnotize you...It's ok as long as you're able to take care of them it's not a problem. I have to slap myself silly everytime I go into a store. It's a good thing that there is no more room for any other budgies unless I buy a new cage. It'll make it more difficult for me to get any-I'll have time to think it over..hehe.. Any names yet? I hope you hurry up and get that camera!;)

Thanks you two ....No names yet ..I want to be sure of the sex before I name them...I'm up to 10 budgies 7 tiels and I have a deposit down for 4 more tiels. :( I was going to go ahead and buy the supplies for my outdoor aviary but I think I'll wait until after the holidays so I can have more money saved up for x-mas and stuff.

If it's a white face male it will have a white face ( i'm not posative if it comes with age or somthing they have at a young age) if it never gets a white face then it's a female - my daughter has a female white face

I swore back in may I was only going to have ONE BIRD that was it, I've got 6 Budgies 4 Tiels and a Quaker parrot ( that is 11 birds in a small 3 bedroom house LOL - thankfully i'm supposed to be moving around december if i get the house its a 4 bedroom with a full basment liveable basment :) which I'll need becuse well we're NOT DONE, we're looking for 4 male tiels and either a cinnoman quaker or a pair of blue quakers ( I can just imagine how bad my head will hurt if we ad another quaker LOL)

The noisest (if thats even a word) out of the entire bunch is the QUAKER you hardly hear anything from the tiels what so ever except for nibbles and baby, if nibbles is taken to the living room or flys out on her own baby starts her "whinning" and vice versa - and that'll get the 2 in quaratine to chirp off an on, BUT every night when i tuck my kids in to bed they all 4 streatch thier wings at me and when I shut the light out each give me a small chirp ( i take it they're telling me good night in thier own way)

the budgies will get loud at times, but that's only when they're having fun and to me it is not loud - specially compared to a Quaker

My dad just saw my new tiel he just looked at it shook his head and walked away :p.
I turned my bedroom into my budgie room and just let them fly all the time . My tiels sleep in cages but I let them out whenever I'm home right now I got 2 on my shoulder , 1 on my leg and the rest are eating :p. It doesn't really get loud with all the birds

The loudest out of the flock is one of the tiels I'm guessing he's a boy (boys are the louder ones right?) If anyone whistles or anything he tries to get the last whistle so if you whistle he just keeps going until you stop .

HUH!:eek: NOT loud? 8 budgies and 2 tiels here and it feels like I'm in a jungle most of the time. I've learned to tune out the budgies since the make the most "noise" but wow- you've really got your hands full!

You must not know about my luck .. With my budgies I had 1 boy and 4 girls at one time so I decided to get another budgies that I the store owner told me was male ...he was wrong and it turned out to be female so I got yet another one that one was male but both of the males passed away a while ago so I had all females until a while ago when I bought my 4 other budgies . I'm sure that 2 are boys and 1 is a girl but I'm not sure about the last one . Then with my english budgies I think I got 2 females and 1 male.
