Snowy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Snowy
Age: Five weeks old
Gender: Unknown
Kind: Budgie
Home: Luton, England
   This is Snowy, the cutest and most best budgie in the world! I bought her from Cambridge for £8.00. I think it's quite inexpensive for a budgie. Budgies are very common pets and a good beginner pet, too. I have experienced life with many parrots and birds so I am used to keeping a budgie. I called her Snowy because of her color, I also could also have called her: Snowflake or Snowball but I like the name Snowy best. Snowy seems to agree.

    We don't know Snowy's gender because when he/she is three or four months old her cere will turn into her/his adult color. If you don't know what a cere is its that bump just above your budgie's beak. You can tell if your budgie's male or female by the color males have bright blue ceres while females have brown or pink. But if you get a budgie under three months old you won't be able to tell if its a boy or a girl. Just wait until your budgie's over three months old and then you will be able to see its gender. I still not sure if Snowy's a male or female but I have a feeling Snowy's a male but I'll not know until Snowy is over three months.

    But don't you think Snowy is the world's cutest budgie? Snowy is not only cute but friendly, too and can always cheer me up when I am having a bad day, just with a chirp and a hop. Snowy is the best!
