Default Rainbow spangle budgie male or female?

I'm new to this site so I'm sorry if anything is unclear.
We got 3 budgies thinking they were all boys however my rainbow spangle budgie's cere has changed and it very different from my definite male They are now around 8 months. I thought I'd ask on here for some advice. Is he/she a boy or girl?

You have a girl! The cere of a female can range from white-light blue-light pink when not in condition and turns brown when in condition.

Thank you so much luckily her name "Tinker" suits a boy and a girl. This has made my day.

Hi there and to the forums!

Tinker is a beautiful girl!

Also, as a point of interest, rainbow is used only to describe a very specific set of mutations; if she's also spangle than most likely her mutation is sky blue greywing yellowface II opaline spangle Of course, if you have any photos taken in natural light of her, we can help confirm

Also, it's inadvisable to keep three budgies housed together, especially when they are mixed genders, as when they are in condition, the males may fight over the female. Of course, this doesn't always happen, but it's important to keep an eye on them, do all you can to discourage breeding, and have a spare cage on hand just in case

https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles-...en-flocks.html

To familiarize yourself with the forums, be sure to read through all of the many articles and stickies that we have here! If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

We would love to see more of little girl (and your other budgies) when you get a chance.

Cheers!

Thank you so much I will definitely continue to add my other budgies. My main priority for today was to find this out for certain. And yes I understand that 2 male and 1 female in a cage together isn't ideal but as we had no idea until I started questioning it not long ago we will see to an extra cage being bought Thank you, you have been very helpful and I hope to keep using this place more often now I have discovered it
