Default Help with sexing my flock

Hello all! Now that I got a new phone I was hoping to get some help determining the genders of my budgies. Till this point I've been referring to them as the genders I felt like they were but I know I may be (in reality probably am) wrong. I'm posting pictures of the 4 of them. Please help! The white one is Camellia. The blue one is Blueberry. The yellow one is Lemon. And the green one is Lime. I took the best pictures I could considering they still aren't super comfortable when my hands are within 6 inches of their cage.

(Also an update, Lemon is getting along better with the others. I saw her preening with Blueberry earlier today.)

Lemon and Camellia look to be females. Blueberry and Lime I'm unsure. I'm leaning more towards males though, but that could just be the lighting. Their ceres do look kind of pale but they also look purpleish. Do you have any other pictures of those two?

Have a read through the stickies on determining gender and you should be able to figure out the sex of your birds

Try posting some pictures of them in natural lighting. Lemon and Camellia are most likely female because of their white cere, but Blueberry and Lime, I can't tell for certain. Please read this: https://talkbudgies.com/determining-g...es-matter.html

From the pictures you have posted, and although flash from the camera seems to have been used, it really seems that Blueberry is the only male in your flock and all 3 of your budgies are females.

If that is the case, then you are bound to separate your budgies due to the steep gender imbalance. You can do so by choosing the two girls who better get along together and place them in one cage, leaving the male/female pair together in a second cage.
