Default Gender?

I just bought two little budgies yesterday, I haven't had birds in many years and can't decide whether I may have males, females or one of each.

Welcome to the forums!
I agree, your lutino (yellow) budgie is without a doubt a young female and the albino (white) also appears to be a female.
They are most likely from the same clutch and sisters.
Best of luck with your two lovely girls!

Thanks, I was thinking they were both the same gender.
I am thinking of breeding them when they are older, I used to breed a pair of budgies years ago.
This is the very first time I've ever had Lutino and Albino budgies though. If and when I do decide to breed them would I need Lutino and Albino mates for them in order to get these colors in babies?

I think you may have two females. However your white budgie (albino) could be male, I'm not an expert but unlike on the your yellow budgie (Lutino) I can't see white on the cere.

I wouldn't advise to breed between two visual Ino budgies. This can cause complications and you may end up with weak chicks.
You would only need to get a yellow based (green budgie) who is split for Ino in order to get lutino chicks with your lutino female.
The same thing goes for your albino, by getting a white based, blue series male split for Ino.
This is what I did when I used to breed Ino budgies. With my male albinos and lutinos, I would pair them with a normal female.
Some Ino budgies don't have the best genes and in some cases their life expectancy isn't the highest when compared with other colour mutations, that was why I chose not to breed from a visual Ino couple.

Welcome to the forums! Feel free to ask about anything else you're wondering about

They are lovely! Congrats on the new darlings
Lutino is definitely a little girl, but the albino is hard to tell. I'm going to say girl also, but do you have any other pictures?
Have you named them yet?
They are quite striking indeed
Hope to see you and your two cuties around here!

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

I agree the lutino is female but am reserving opinion on the albino until I see a full frontal close up picture of the cere taken in natural light.

Thank you guys I absolutely love them already and yes I have named them Lemon and Snow.
Below is some that I took yesterday while I had them on the porch enjoying the nice weather, more of a frontal view of Snow.
And thank you Aluz for the breeding tips!
