I'm seeing a brown colour/crust on both photos, this is on the bottom part of the cere in the middle and right side of the cere.
It really seems like Laura is starting to come into breeding condition now.
What colour do you normally see on Laura's cere?
A recessive pied female not in breeding condition will have the normal creamy white cere which may or may not have some faint bluish colour on the edges.
The cere on recessive pied males will have a uniform pinkish or purplish colour, their ceres will not mature into the royal blue colour.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
