Default Little Sunshine is getting tired of...

being called it or (s)he. LOL If someone could please help me out and give a guess as to the age and gender I would be very appreciative. (S)he was the only one in the store without bars on the head but I was wondering if that is due to the mutation type. Thanks so much.

In the picture you posted, Sunshine appears to be a little female.

On my computer, it appears the cere is a very light pinkish/purple with whitish rings around the nares rather than the smooth deep translucent pinkish/purple one would see in a male.

She does not have bars on her head because of her mutation which is called "Lutino".
Lutino budgies have reddish colored eyes.

My all yellow budgie is a male Dark Eyed Clear.
Sparky has all black eyes.
This is what his cere looked like when I brought him home from the breeder so you can view the difference in the cere coloration between Sunshine and Sparky.



It can be difficult to determine the gender of DECs, Albinos, Lutinos and recessive pied budgies. The coloration of the cere can vary due to lighting.

We have a couple of gender/mutations experts who will determine whether or not my assessment of Sunshine's gender is corret.

Sunshine is a lovely lutino budgie. Lemon Drop thinks so too.

Thanks both of you. I had been calling her a him, but will switch to her now...

My hubby says that it has to be female because she is so sassy.... Letting us know her opinion of whatever we do. Such a joy to have her active and not sitting and sulking in the cage.

Now that our expert in mutations and gender, Starling Wings, has confirmed Sunshine is female, I'm closing this thread.
