Sunny and Sky are very cute.
I saw they have a total wing clip.
Do you think you'll let the primaries regrow?

the breed clipped them for me i will most likly keep them clipped till they are completely tame they flitter down to the grown now so they are easy to catch right now. both are very young birds so i am hoping that they will be easy to tame

They're gorgeous, congratulations! Does Sky have a yellow face? It's hard to tell in the photos and some yellow faced are very pale

Regarding the clipping, I used to clip my younger birds before going to their new homes as people requested it so many times to make them 'tamer'. It really doesn't make any difference. As long as they're handled frequently growing up and they are gently coaxed they will become fabulous pets. I find that clipping birds that young is a bit barbaric, as they don't have the opportunity to develop the strong muscles needed for flight. These two are very young, surely just recently weaned. I'm not having a go or anything, don't worry! I'm just making notes when it comes to breeding birds who are naturally tame. As long as they aren't messed with too much and are respected they will come to you. I stopped hand rearing budgies too as it is completely unnecessary regarding taming them. At a young age they are very impressionable and you can train them with ease thanks to their naivety. Once they have their first moult I recommend letting their flights grow out, they'll be considerably more confident around you as they have a means of escape should they want to get away

they fly or flutter around pretty good when we get them out sometimes they are not very easy to catch i do not know how old they are really but since i am in a camper right now i figure it best for them to be clipped. sky has yellow on top of his head ,wings,and tail but his face is white. sky does ok when gotten out but sunny bites and hard sometimes hoping i can tame them though i also have larger birds and it is safer for them to be clipped so they can not land on the larger birds cages
