Need some help - Boy or Girl?
3 Attachment(s)
I've had this sweet what I'm assuming is a girl since mid November and have posted pics of her in budgie groups on facebook and I have had some people tell me girl others say boy. So I need some help determining the gender of "her". These are natural sunlight pictures, had her and her companion outside in their cage earlier today. And more info, her cere is a very light pink almost white in person, it looks pinker in pictures.

Hi :welcome:

Cute budgie.. looking at your avatar pic, which looks more clear to me than the attached pics, you have a male.

I’m going to say probably because even with natural light in these pics the colors appear washed out and hard to see. You mention a whitish color, but if the cere is light pink and has a sort of whitish ‘haze’ over it, they’re male. If the whitish color is more ‘chalky’ and opaque, that would indicate female. However, pink is not a female budgie color.

If you can take more pics in natural light without it being too bright, which is making the photo washed out looking, that would help to see natural color so we can confirm this.

If you haven’t already, please read the Stickies at the top area of each forum section. You’ll find answers to basic questions there, and find some useful tips.

Enjoy the forum :).

Hi! :welcome: to Talk Budgies

I agree with RavensGryf, I believe you have a male If you will post pictures taken in natural light (but not direct sunlight) that will be helpful to confirm the gender.

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.

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.
