Default Sex my budgie?

I got a budgie this February after one of my two budgies passed away. My other little budgie had gotten lonely so I got him a new friend. S/he should be about 6 or 7 months old now but I still can’t really tell what sex my budgie is. I believed it was make for most of the time but it is difficult to tell because it’s cere hasn’t changed color at all and is starting to look more white? If you know what sex my budgie is please help! I need to know if I need to separate my budgie from my male budgie to prevent breeding if the new one is female.

Was the picture taken with flash?
Flash can wash out the color of the cere.
If not, then you have a female.
What have you named her?

Rearranging their cage frequently, and limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day will help tremendously to discourage breeding behavior.
Please be sure you never put a nest box or anything that could be used as a nesting site in their cage.

When they come into condition, limit the amount of protein in their diet at that time.

The photo was not taken with flash. Thank you for the information. Her name was Pickett but I am thinking about changing it to cricket since I was mistaken on gender.

Although the photo isn’t the best, it does look like you have a female. Especially since you say it has been getting more white lately. As for age of the first time she’ll come into condition and start getting a brown cere, it varies with individuals. My female didn’t turn until much later than most. She was around a year. 6 months is still a bit young though.

I wasn’t sure how to edit my previous post on my budgie Pickett’s gender. Here is a better quality photo that might help.

Also I forgot to mention previously that it acts very feminine, the bite actually hurts unlike my male budgies, they never head bob or sing. Only makes loud shrill chirps.

I've merged your two threads regarding Pickett's gender.
