Budgerigars are the only species in the Australian genus Melopsittacus and are found wild throughout the drier parts of Australia where the species has survived harsh inland conditions for the last five million years. Fancy Budgie Babies also known as the common pet parakeet or shell parakeet and informally nicknamed the budgie.
These budgies are transferred to stores on a daily basis and due to the fast turnonver of these pets, it is difficult to provide the exact date of birth.
The babies are mostly in between 6-11 Weeks of Age.
Budgie babies do not show exact color when they are young and being a baby it is difficult to determine the gender.
Budgies live in flocks and roam in the wild togther. It is recommended to keep them in a minimum of pair as the baby budgies get stressed out easily and do not make in the new environment easily.

UVB enables birds to produce vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin,” which is essential for calcium metabolism and immune function. UVC is normally filtered out by the earth's ozone layer and does not exist on the planet naturally.
UVB plays a very important role. It allows your bird to synthesise Vitamin D3 in their skin or through a special process involving the preening gland. Parrots need Vitamin D3 to metabolise calcium which they use to produce eggs, build and maintain strong bones and maintain normal growth.
Keeping your bird under right amount of UVB needs some consultation with a Certified Professional.
Despite other benefits from UVB, it helps processing the calcuim in captivity and help improving the birds vision.
