Default Marllow's gender

Hi!
I recently bought two budgies, and my female(?), Marllow, is an albino. I was reading an other website and they said that male albino budgies will have a white cere. Marllow's cere is white/ tan depending on lighting and such.
Sorry I have no pictures, I will work on uploading some to my signature soon!

Hi there and welcome to the forums!

The information you have read on albino budgies was not accurate, the exception to the rule is actually for male Inos (albino/lutino) where their ceres will not mature into the royal blue colour and they will keep the immature pinkish/purplish colour on their ceres for all of their lives.

From your description of Marllow's cere, it's very clear that she is a female.
All female budgies, regardless of their colour mutations will have the same coloured ceres for when they are in breeding condition (tan to dark brown, crusty ceres) and out of condition (creamy white ceres that may or may not have some faint light bluish colour on the edges. Cere will have a smoother appearance).

Thanks!
Happy to know that Marllow is in fact a girl.
(And I think Coco, my male, is too!
