Budgie Breeding Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

Default Help with ino sexing?

It's hard to tell with inos what gender they are from what I understand, I've been researching but am unsure. I was hoping someone here could help me out.

I am new to budgies, and am not breeding them, just want to know for naming purposes lol

I have two, a lutino and an albino. I am posting two pics of each, one in regular lighting and one with flash on. Hopefully someone can tell, and maybe give me some pointers? Thank you!

We can take best guess with those pics, but really need different ones. The best way to show accurate cere color, is to take your pics in natural daylight. The first pics appear they were taken with a flash, and the second pics are not in the best lighting to see the true color. Sometimes the wrong lighting can make males appear as females.

Ino females will have the same color as any female; opaque whitish light blue, and tan to brown when mature and in condition.

Ino males will keep the immature pinkish cere their entire lives.

The lutino appears female from the pic, albino can go either way, but again, we’d appreciate clear pics taken in bright enough natural light to be accurate for sure .

Well that stinks, because my apartment is pretty dark even at midday, being on the north side of the building. Is this good enough light? They are clipped, so I COULD bring them outside, but I would rather not risk it.

The albino looks like another female. Is her cere actually an opaque very light bluish white? Still not the best pic for gender determination, but I realize the circumstances, and appreciate your efforts .

With my male budgie, when he was a juvenile, you’d be sure he was a female by his photos, because he had lots of white on his cere. Now, he’s unmistakably male. He has recessive pied genes in him, and sometimes, I noticed those males can have a bit more white around the nostrils than usual.

Even on a cloudy day, the bird or cage by a window should provide natural daylight. You’re right about not taking your budgie outside . Even clipped, it is a risk to a budgie’s safety.

That was taken inches away from my sliding glass doors to my balcony, with nary a cloud in the sky. This place is seriously shadowed. Even ivy plants come here to die. We all have to take vitamin D supplements.

At least the camera is good. That's as true a color as seen by the naked eye. Hence my confusion. But I'm pretty sure they're female, and since I'm not planning on breeding, I guess it doesn't really matter anyhow.

Thank you for weighing in for me, much appreciated.

Smile so pretty

all I can say is wait as they reach breeding age the females cere will turn tan or brown even in inos so my suggestion is pick a name that works for ether sex.

Contrary to popular belief, young budgies can be accurately sexed quite early if one knows what to look for. Where it becomes more tricky is over the internet, as pics often show different than in real life. When a close and clear photo is taken in natural lighting, we can tell the gender.
