Female budgies that are young or not in breeding condition will have a cere that is sky blue / white wi a blue tinge (and sometime the cere will be tan coloured)
Thank you for your reply. I had read that male budgies have a blue cere and female budgies have a tan or brown one (mating condition). I just thought that Whitey's cere was going to turn bluer as he grew up. Thanks for the information.
