Maybe the breeder, has a few budgies and has bred a few, but doesn't know the ins and outs of determining sex of youngsters. Most of us know that if you get a budgie from a pet store it's a 50-50 toss if they'll sex it correctly. For many sales clerks I've talked with over the last few years the story is blue means boy, but that's for adult males (adult males have a dark royal blue) but not all. Your budgie has a normal pale blue cere which is normal for a young hen, and will gradually turn brownish which she comes into breeding condition. She's beautiful and I'm sure you're having fun watching her develop.
