I had to look into your past posts in order to find the picture https://talkbudgies.com/attachments/d...3470711780.jpg

aluz had told you he was a boy. She is very experienced with budgies. Also, that pic is so clear that it shows Cookie is most definitely a boy. How is the cere 'changing'? It must be turning blue?

Aw, he's sure cute. Definitely a "he"... again . I can't see any hint of blue yet, he's still young. But if it is the brown spot you're referring to, that is a little food or some sort of debris that will come off.

A young female would not have such a pinkish lavender cere. It would be chalky whitish light blue, then as they approach maturity, it gets more white, then if they should come into condition, it gets tan, then brown. But you most definitely have a boy

Your Cookie is 100% male and his cere will go through some changes as he continues to grow till he reaches maturity.
You will notice the cere gradually getting a deeper purplish colour and when he is about to turn 6 months old, his cere will change to a royal blue colour.
Depending on his genes, he may keep the immature purplish colour on his cere, but since he is a single factor dominant pied budgie, his cere will most likely mature into the royal blue colour.

You have all the necessary information on Cookie's gender settled now. Before I closed the thread I just wanted to say I think he's precious!

You might want to start an (Ongoing Thread) in the Budgies Pictures section of the forum to share lots of your little cutie with us.
