Hello there and
to the forums!
Congratulations on your little budgie! He is a beautiful little male
Although the lighting in the picture isn't the best for telling gender (as photos should be taken without flash and in natural light so as not to distort the natural colours of the cere), I believe from the uniform purple colour that your little bird is a boy
Young males have purplish or pinkish ceres with no white that have a slight pearly sheen. As they get older, it will mature into the usual royal blue colour in most mutations.
However, because your little one is a recessive pied budgie, he will keep the immature pinkish purple colour throughout his life, as well as his dark "baby eyes" with no iris
Does he have a name yet?
In the meantime, be sure to read through the Budgie Articles as well as the forum's "stickies" (posts "stuck" to the top of each subforum for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on the very best budgie care and practices! If you have any questions after reading through anything, be sure to ask as we'd be pleased to help.
I'm glad you've joined the forums and we hope to see you around!
