Default Is my yellow budgie a boy?

Hello sorry this is my first post so I donít quite know how to word these things yet. I just got my first buggie and to me he looks male from other pictures Iíve seen but I would like to see what everyone else thinks.

Thanks everyone!

Hello and

You have a very cute little budgie. I believe she is a girl, since it looks like she has a light blueish cere with white around the nares (nostrils). She might be lutino (like albino but yellow), though I can't tell for sure from just this picture.

You have come to the right place to learn more about budgies! Be sure to read all the articles and stickies (posts stuck to the top of a forum).

What is your little girl's name? I look forward to seeing more of her and you around!

Well her name was Simon but that might need to change if sheís a girl haha

He looks spangled to me, he has sliver cheeks and black button eyes. As well as some green on his tummy.

I looked at the picture again and see some green, though the lighting makes a big difference when identifying this, especially from pictures. Someone who actually knows about this (meaning someone other than me) would need to see a picture of the back to confirm. I mostly know about lutinos, because that is what Lemon Drop is.

It is important to go slowly with budgies and not interact with them until you have had them for at least two weeks. Check out the post from FaeryBee, one of the experts on here, in this thread: https://www.talkbudgies.com/taming-bo...w-budgies.html

You can, if you are patient and lucky, get some good pictures without disturbing your bird though.

As someone who has seen this bird in person I can confirm he is not a lutino! He did look like a boy to me, with more of a pink looking cere than in the picture.

He is so cute

Hi there and to the forums!

You have a beautiful little boy

I can't see enough of his feathers from the photos to accurately confirm his mutation, would you be able to get photos of his wings and front taken in natural light?

He's very cute I look forward to seeing more of him!

Be sure to read through all the rest of the forum's 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.

Best wishes!
