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!!
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.
