Can anyone tell me what sex Dio is? I think he is a he.. but the cere is changing colour so I’m no longer certain. He was sold to me as a hand tame but in fact they had just clipped his wings so he had no choice but to be ‘hand tamed’ he is now a very timid little bid and I can’t get near enough for a decent picture. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Those are not the best pictures for determining gender as they are very dark.
The best photos are those that are full frontal, taken in natural light with no flash and no direct sunlight.

In the first picture, Dio looks to be female as the cere is a very pale whitish-blue.

Female from the 1st photo.Pale fading blue. Male would be purple darkening to royal blue. Also I've have her checked if she's developing scaly face mite (the ragged corners of her beak). Talk Budgies has the best resources for anything budgie. Make use of all the information here that you can.

Thanks, I know they are not the best. But yes it has turned a really pale whitish blue. So if this is correct he is a she? Which means I have two girls

Yes, she is definitely a girl :)
