Default Help sexing new budgies.

Hello, Its been 10+ years since I last had budgies so I'm a bit rusty.
I have three new budgies now and while I think i have the sexes right I would love a second opinion.

First is this older budgie, clear cap and very noticeable iris rings.
I'm 95% sure this is a female.





Second : Another blue budgie. Young, still has the bars on the forehead and no iris ring. I think this one is male.


Third: Another young one, no iris ring. I also think this one is male.


Here is 2 and 3 together. Couldn't get a very good picture of the yellow one, "He" still doesn't like me very much.


Thanks for your help

Thanks! Now I can start thinking of names for them
The blue male is especially friendly, I've had them 2 days and he will already perch on my hand.

The blue male is a really young one so he may be the easiest to tame and bond with.

Hi Kellie! Welcome back to budgie care
It's great to see you on the forums and please ask anything you're unsure of!
I agree with FaeryBee--female, male, male. They are so adorable! Any names you like so far?

Your little ones are gorgeous, can't wait to see more of them

Well, I beg to differ on one of the budgies.
The first one is clearly female (older), the second budgie is also a young female and the third budgie is a male.
I'm seeing a pale bluish mingled with white cere on the youngest (fully barred) blue budgie. Those are the typical colours on a very young budgie girl.
I'm pretty certain with time the cere will progressively turn white in colour, and then there will be no doubts, not that I have any!
