Default Please Advise Gender - Must Decide Before Christmas

Hello! So I made a previous post asking for help with some photos a breeder sent me. I was able to go visit the budgies today. What’s people’s opinion on the sex for these little babes?! Desperate as I need to make a decision tomorrow before Christmas.

Thanks so much in advance!

I've changed the title of your thread.
Please read our Site Guidelines which explain using descriptive titles on threads.
TalkBudgies.com Rules and Guidelines

The blue budgie in the first post is female.

The yellow-blue pied budgie in the second post is male.

I am unable to open the thumbnail of the last post so I cannot advise you of the gender.
When asking for help regarding gender, it is always best to post full-sized pictures.

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!

Sorry, yes I was just using my phone.
Here's that last photo, I couldn't get a good shot of it as it was so far back of the aviary.


Thought I'd repost my other photos too

Blue Opaline:




Yellow-Blue pied violet cheeks:

The pied is a definite male. The blue opy very likely a female.

What do you think about this one? Thanks!
Ah, I'm SO indecisive. It's so hard to choose.

Thanks so much for your input. I'm a little sad the Opaline is female, she was so beautiful. But really have my heart set on a male.
Thanks again!
Kate

Which one? The white one or the yellow one? They both have purple cheeks.

I'm really struggling on which budgie to choose! It's so hard. So love hearing feedback on what others love

The blue and white pied is also a male
Mirrasi- you can tell what gender a budgie is by the color of the cere. Young males will typically have a pink-purple cere, while young females will have a pale blue-white cere or pink with much more white around the nostrils. Adult males will have a deep blue cere, except for certain mutations such as a recessive pied, which will remain pink. Adult females will either have a pale blue cere or a crusty brown when in breeding condition.
