I just got a new English budgie and I got one breeder telling me its a girl and another breeder telling me it's a boy because that specific mutation allows for different cere colors, so I'm a little confused now. The cere is pretty pale in the middle like a girl, but the edges up close are darker purple, like a male would have at a youngish age.
One of the photos are from when it was younger, and the rest are current.

Okay, thanks for answering though! I was 99% sure it was a girl but I was told it was a boy for sure so I got really confused.

As Starlingwings said, you definitely have a female. A pretty one too!

Wow! Your female is absolutely beautiful!
What have you named her?

As you now have a male and a female, if you plan to house them together after quarantine, please be sure you do everything necessary to discourage breeding.

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members
Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

Rearranging their cage frequently, and limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day will help tremendously. 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.
