Default Help with my Albino Budgie?

Hey everyone! I know that when I recently adopted these two lovely budgies, I was told that they were both male due to the ceres of their noses, but they didn't seem too sure. Therefore, I was hoping for someone to tell me the sex of these two peepers? I don't want them to breed but they have been acting very lovingly with one another even though they seem quite young. I know that the cere of their beaks is supposed to be the tell-tale sign of their sex, but does the rule apply to albino parakeets? I believe the white one is an Ino variation as it is very white with red eyes; however, I noticed very light brown faded markings on the back of him.

Also, if you know what color variation the yellow one is, I would like to know! Thank you!

Hi there and to the forums!

You've got two beautiful little boys

Yes, the white one is an albino. Sometimes a few very faded markings remain, this may be what you're seeing.

The yellow one is a blue series yellow face II recessive pied budgie, I can't tell which shade of blue as he's heavily pied Either way, because he's recessive pied, his cere should stay pink his entire life and he will not develop irises. The albino's cere will also remain pink his whole life

You've come to a great place to learn even more about the best of budgie care practices!

Please be sure to read through the forums' many budgie articles and "stickies" (threads
"stuck" to the top of each subforum for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on the best of budgie care. If you have any questions after doing so, please do ask as we'd love to help!

Hope to see you and your boys around here What are their names?

Cheers

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Both of your budgie boys are simply precious!
What have you named them?

It is quite normal for budgies of the same gender to be very loving with one another and often they will become quite bonded. The two white males in my signature are extremely close and are constantly feeding, preening and playing with one another.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
