Default Another Cere/Nares Question

Albert was DNA'd and definitely is a male. The color around his nares...it is blue to me, not white or cream, and the rest of the cere is purplish pink, so that indicates male, am I correct?

Yes. But I'm asking in case I want to identify males from females in the future, if you see the light color around the nostrils and it's blueish, not white or cream, and the cere is purpley pink, not light blueish, it's a male?

I wouldn't want to say that. My knowledge is limited but from what I have seen with my own eye's, and on the forum here, I would only feel comfortable saying that about a bird who is at the age that the cere changes like that. I'm betting your boy's cere a few week's ago showed no blue, just an even shade of pink/purple. In other word's, a younger bird looking like he look's now would make me inclined to think hen, but as I said, I am no expert. I have seen bird's with no white around the nares, turn out to be hen's...

Thank you for your input. I appreciate it. I've paid for a lot of DNA tests to be sure I had males just for the reason you stated.

Get yourself a hotline to Lindsey and Aluz and you can skip those DNA test's...

With my own flock females cere is usually all white or white with a blue ring and males are uniform blue all over the cere. With my males they have a very very very very dark blue cere but i believe even if light blue/purple if is pretty much covers the whole cere it is a boy

Yes; dark blue or purply-blue cere with pale blue nostril rings is common for male budgies.

Hens will have pale blue ceres with white nostril rings.
