Hi Benjamin!

Your little girl really is beautiful! (Yes, she is a girl!) From what I can see, she's completely white, is that correct? If so, she could be an Albino (if she has red eyes), a Dark Eyed Clear budgie (if she has no irises) or a double factor spangle budgie (if she does have irises). If you had a closer picture of her eyes, we'd be able to confirm for you :)

Hi Benjamin and welcome to TB! :)

Your budgie girl is a cutie! :love:
Since her eyes aren't red, her feet are pink in colour and she doesn't have white coloured irises on her eyes, then she is a white based (blue series) dark-eyed clear budgie.

being that I'm taking a chance by getting her a buddie since I'm not good at sexing them. what would go good with her in the chance that i happen to get a boy. shooting for another girl because i have more then enough tiel babies right now haha but you always take that chance when your not an expert and you get a pet a buddy.

The colour preference is up to you when going for a second budgie.
I personally like to pair blue series with green series budgies.

If you want another female, by looking at the colour on the cere you will be able to have an idea on gender. Young females will have light bluish mingled with white ceres, in time the white colour will spread more evenly on the cere.
When first coming in to breeding condition the colour on the cere will gradually tan till reaching a dark brown colour.

Young males will have uniform pinkish/purplish coloured ceres (no hint of white) and in most colour mutations the cere will turn to a royal blue colour upon reaching maturity.

If her eyes do have irises, then she is a double factor spangle budgie ;) She's precious! And so are the tiel chicks, too, by the way :D :love:
