They are gorgeous

In order, they are female, male, female, male, female, male, probably male, male. If you have any other photos of the second to last budgie, that would be great.

As you have an uneven ratio of males to females, you will have to watch them closely for signs of bullying and fighting, which can happen frequently among flocks with uneven ratios of each sex.

Both all blue budgies are female, all the yellow and green budgies are male. Of the two white ones, the one with the brown cere is female and the other one (greyish blue?) looks to be male, although that's the one that I'd be able to tell for sure with more photos

The very first one is a male, and the last three are females

I was told the mostly yellow, the green and yellow with pink cere, the mostly white, and the light green and yellow one where females and the rest were males. By a breeder here locally who owns a pet store.

Actually, that's not true.

Sometimes breeders don't know how to tell gender of their chicks, which shouldn't be the case but unfortunately is.

Any bird with a pink or purplish cere is male The mostly yellow one is recessive pied and therefore (due to this mutation) will keep his pink cere throughout his entire life, unlike the other green one with a pink cere, whose cere will turn blue as he matures.

The mostly white one is a female, however.
