Hi, I have a 10ish month old blue parakeet who I was confident was a girl until the last few weeks. When I got her at around three months old, she had a light purple cere with pink legs/feet, but over the past 2 months or so her cere has become very obviously blue which made me begin to believe she may be a male. However I’m still confused because her legs and feet have remained pink which would indicate a female... Although I still think she’s probably a girl, I am less sure now. She/he is my first parakeet, so if any more experienced budgie owners could shed some light on what gender my bird may be I would much appreciate it. Thanks!
She/he is my profile avatar so you can see a pic for reference.
