I've just taken in this pretty little budgie today, from a friend who didn't want it. I haven't had a budgie since I was a kid, but I do have two cockatiels so I'm hoping this little one will be happy with them nearby. I've read the stickies about identifying gender, and it sounds easier than sexing cockatiels, but now that I'm looking at the cere I'm just not sure. I'm leaning towards female, but I'd love some other opinions. Thanks in advance!
Yes, she's a beautiful little girl! What's her name?

Hope to see you around!

Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic

Thanks everyone. I've named her Sunny, and she seems to be settling in well! She is very skittish and not at all tame, but that will get better with time. I'm going to post more pictures in the mutation forum to get some input on that, and I'll fill everyone in on her story. She hasn't had a great start in life, but she's going to be very well cared for from now on.
