Welcome to the forums! Your Bijou is very cute and I think you should know that "he" is in fact a beautiful little budgie girl.

!!!!!!!!!! I thought his cere was turning blue and therefore he would be a boy isn't it ?
It's making me very nervous that you say this, I bought him especially since I thought he was a boy (she was a boy ?) because I don't know how to take care of a female budgie (eggs ???) I'm very stressed about this

I'm 100% sure your Bijou is a girl.
Very young females like your Bijou have a very light powdery blue cere mingled with white colour, as they get older the white will spread more evenly and when reaching maturity their ceres will progressively turn tan till they get a dark brown colour.

Young male budgies will have an overall pinkish/purplish cere that will turn royal blue in colour when reaching maturity.

Female budgies can make great pets too and since your Bijou is still very young at about 2 and a half months old, you shouldn't have much trouble when it comes to bonding with her.
As to the eggs, as long as you don't give her any potential nesting spots then all should be well. I never had a budgie girl to lay eggs without my wanting them to.

I'm heartbroken. I've been thinking Bijou was a boy for a month I had him (her...), and I asked at the pet shop and thought I was getting a male (more easy to sing and talk etc...)

Thanks for the info... I feel very lost

You're welcome and I'm sorry this was bad news to you.
Depending on personality, some budgie girls can be great singers, I have proof in my own flock as 2 out of my 3 females sing as much as the boy budgies.
My Dinda even learnt a made up song her father used to sing. He was a talker and she learnt a couple of words from him.

In case you don't know, not all male budgies are talented enough to talk. Despite all of them having the potential not all will learn the skill.

Bijou is a beautiful bird. Welcome to talk budgies to you and her. I think even though bijou is a girl, she will make a wonderful pet for you. She may learn to talk and sing, some girls do, and as Aluz has said, not all boys do either. I have two girls one started spitting out a word or two for awhile, and then it became to garbled to understand, and when she was moved into a cage with other budgies she quit doing it very as often. I have no doubt that if she would have been the sole bird in the house, and I had worked with her, that she would be a talker.....

Thank you everyone. I am still happy I have a little girl of course. It was just a little shock for me, and a bit of worry to know it after thinking it was a boy. I'll do my best to research how to care for a cute baby girl instead

I'm not familiar yet with the forums but I will go around and read more, thank you also for the links
