Default Is my Darla's Sibling a Boy or Girl

This little baby is 4 weeks old. I put a deposit on hopes that it is a boy. I am hearing he is super sweet and calm. I have my female Darla. I do not want to chance 2 females not getting along. I know it is possible that a male and female can also fight, but the odds are better. And I am very partial to boys. As much as I love my Darla, she is 100% a strong willed witchy girl. Lol. So what do we think, boy or girl? Temperament leans towards boy, but the light around the nostrils makes me question. Can you really be sure at 4 weeks?

To me, it looks like a girl but I'd prefer that StarlingWings and PoukieBear weigh in on the thread. I'll contact them and ask that they do so.

Yes, it is possible to tell a budgie's gender at 4 weeks.

Thank you. I do think it may be girl too. But this little one is so sweet and calm. It is a sibling to my Darla. I definitely want a male. I think only 1 may only be a male in this clutch. They also had 2 6 month old English budgies. I was thinking about maybe one of them. Decisions. Lol!

Hi there,

To me it also looks like a little girl I know you wanted a male but in fact many females get along quite well together just as well as males or a male and a female do! In fact it's mostly temperament that determines if two budgies will get along or not. Here's a thread re. female budgies:

Two girls can get along just fine.
I had two and they were best friends!

Thank you for the confirmation everyone. She is really cute! I am still deciding. Since hubby will only allow one more, I am really wanting a boy. Plus I think the odds are better with a boy getting along with Darla. I know nothing is 100%, but I like the better odds
