We're having the hardest time. At least we can narrow it down now that we think it's a boy thanks to everyone here

We need help naming haha. We have it narrowed down to a few.

Beegee
Kiwi
Rory
Watson
Fiji

No idea, we're really making this hard for ourselves

Thank you for all the links too. Believe it or not, I've read most of them , but I was always told males have blue ceres, and females are purple or pink.

I will have to read these links again and make a small list.

Thank you all SO much!! You all are really awesome!!

IT'S A BOY!!
Congratulations, you baby boy is gorgoues. I like Kiwi as a name too Can't think why

If this helps ...
The blue is a boy, tan is a girl relates to a mature budgie and even then it isn't always right for a few mutations. Most budgies will show a deep blue for males and either the tan or light powder blue for females. However, for mutations such a ino or recessive pied the mature male does not get the deep blue cere, keeping the pink/purple of babyhood. This can make it a lot more difficult to guess the gender, especially from pictures.

For babies, an even deep pink/purple cere is a boy and in females we look for white rings around the nostrils and light blue tinge to the cere.

Thank you! You said it so simple. A lot of my confusion was certain articles I was reading wouldn't specify a baby bird or an older one. That's what was confusing me. Thank you. I know the ones with mutations are all different.

Haha, Jeremy (gionk) loves kiwi, as do I very much so, and it really fits our budgie, but its so common.

I love oliver and oscar.

Now we just have to compromise on a name. He says we have so tons of time to name him, but I want a name already. It's been a week!

Dawn,
If both you and Jeremy like the name "Kiwi" then what's the problem? It doesn't matter if it is "common".

It isn't like your little boy is going to be in budgie kindergarten and there will be 6 other budgies will the same name in his class.
(which, by the way, is what I had to deal with. )

Kiwi does seem a fitting name for your little fellow... but if you choose something else then your baby budgie will love that name just as much because YOU guys gave it to him.

Kiwi will be a very easy name for your budgie to pronounce if he starts speaking. Try to keep a 2-syllable name if that's what you hope for!

He's really adorable and oh, so young!

I wanted to post updated pictures to see if everyone still thinks he's a boy. These pics are almost a week old, and his cere and beak have changed ever more, but it's pretty close. The black on his beak is almost gone now. Okay, can people give me their opinion if they still think he is a boy?
Thanks
