Default Male or female

I'm just checking. When I bought my budgie I got told she was a female... Mine being the white albino budgie. Also my mums budgie (bought from the same shop got told hers was also a female but I'm not so sure?

Your budgie is indeed a female. But, your mom's is not a female it is a male.

I agree that your mom's bird looks to be a male, how old is he? If it was a female I would expect to see a bit of a whitish ring around the nares and I do not see that in the picture, it looks more like a young male. If it is a male the cere will eventually turn blue.

My mums budgie is around the same age as mine so just over 4months now.... He is a sweet little thing and has become tame enough to get him out of the cage and be able to put him back, he's not as vocal as my little budgie though lol

The above posters are correct in that you have a female, and your mom has a male.
