Default Is my yellow/lutino a boy?

I'm pretty sure it's a boy, but then he's not too chatty or screechy and loves to regurgitate food to share with me at least once a day, so I'm still hesitant, lol. Any ideas?

Yes, your adorable little fluffball is a boy. I can tell by the color of the cere, which is a purply-pink. Behavior is not a good way to determine gender. https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles-...e-budgies.html

Definitely a beautiful boy. Are you sure he's a lutino? Lutino's have red eyes. In the picture he looks like he has black eyes, meaning he's a dark eyed clear.

I doubted he was... I just put that there as I was unsure. And thank you! I didn't know what colouring he was, so I appreciate the info!

Definitely male, but not a Lutino.

He could be a Dark Eye Clear as mentioned, or he could be a DF Spangle. (If he's a Spangle, he will develop Iris rings when mature, unless he's masking or split for Rec. Pied)

Do you know what his parents mutations were?

He is a beautiful little boy! I agree with Michelle regarding his possible mutation

I'm afraid I don't know his parents mutations. Is there a way to tell his mutation without knowing what his parents were...?

Yes, after he's matured into an adult (is 9-12 months old), if he has irises, then he is a double factor spangle. His cere will also turn blue if he is a double factor spangle. If his cere remains pink and his eyes without iris, then he is a dark eyed clear
