Default Second opinion on gender please

Hi! I've had my babies a couple of weeks now and thought I'd ask about their gender. I got Teddy and Rocket from a breeder who said they were both definitely males. I posted pics on another site and some questioned whether they were male or not.. so I thought I'd ask here as most likely someone more qualified will be able to help haha

Anyways, these are probably the best pictures I have where you can see their ceres properly so sorry if they aren't good enough!

Oh and Teddy is the cinnamon and Rocket is a creamino

Hi there and to the forums!

Your little budgies are adorable, congratulations!

They're actually both beautiful little girls as both their ceres are pale and whitish, which indicates female. If the pictures are true to what you see in real life, then there is no doubt as to their gender.

We look forward to seeing more of your beautiful little girls around the forums!

You've come to a great place to learn even more about these sweet birds! Be sure to read through the forum's many articles and "stickies" which will help you stay updated on the very best of budgie care practices!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask!

We look forward to seeing you and your budgies around the forums!

Cheers

Ahh thank you! I had my suspicions as I'd read that white around the nostrils indicates females but I wasn't sure as I'd never had babies so young.

I do love them already so I don't mind whichever gender they are I do have a question though do you think 2 females would be happy living together? I've never owned females before, only had boys in the past so not too sure on the differences etc.

I'll definitely be reading through all the stickies, this looks like a great place to learn everything.

Thanks again!

Yep definitely two females. While a pair of females do tend to bicker a bit more than a pair of males, since you have gotten these two together when they are young, they should be fine. I have a pair of females who bicker but they also preen and feed each other lol. Have you thought of names for them yet?

Ahh that's okay, I had noticed they do bicker more than I thought, but nothing serious which is good. It all makes sense now!

Well I had named them Teddy and Rocket, which I'll probably stick with but I always call them 'my boys' which will be hard to get out the habit of

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!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
