Default Do I have an Albert or an Alberta?

This beautiful little bird has me stumped. I've been calling him Albert, without knowing for sure that i have a boy. I think he is a recessive pied, just based on what I have read. To me, he looks like a boy....but I am definitely no expert.
I would like to know what you all think. Do you think I have an Albert, or an Alberta?

Sorry all of my pictures are sideways...

Thank you so much guys! I thought he might be a boy, and I'm glad that he is. I got my boys about a month ago, and I feel like we are getting along pretty well. They trust me enough now to eat treats that I'm holding.
I know for sure my green fellow is a boy. His name is Armand :-)

More sideways pictures ha ha...I'll will have to figure the picture thing out :-)

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Albert is certainly an adorable little fellow!

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.
