Moms Bird?
 
A lady recently gave my mom her 3 year old budgie and we'd like to know if she's actually a female? The lady that owned her bought her as a baby and was told she was a female.
Since her cere is not the normal blue for boy or tan for girl I have no clue.
Her name is Daisy so we kinda hope she is a female.

I'm seeing an overall pinkish cere, so Daisy is in fact a very gorgeous boy! :)
He must have recessive pied genes mixed in, since his cere has maintained the immature pinkish colour and his eyes are also fully black despite already being an adult.

I think Daisy is a boy because of the purplish cere. It's a very cute bird!:giggle:

LOL, after looking at all the pictures here that was actually what I was afraid of. So she has a little boy named Daisy hehe. :D
Thank you Aluz

You're welcome! :D I'm on the same boat as you, I have a male lovebird called Khaleesi, I thought he was a she for the first 5 months of his life. It was too late to change the name because by that time he already responded to his name.

What a very handsome boy he is! I think Daisy is fine for a boy's name! Many budgie owners seem to use a lot of licence with names!! I'm sure Daisy likes his name too!

I'm sure he loves his name and since he's been called Daisy for 3 years now I don't think it would be a very good idea to up and change it on him. :)

Daisy is a gorgeous name for your handsome little man!! Boys never get the flower names, I don't think that's quite fair :giggle:

I agree with aluz, the cere is still an immature color and eyes are black indicating recessive pied genes :) I would say he's dominant and recesive pied!

Daisy is lovely :love:

Same here! Maybe Daisy could be close buds with my baby girl, Harry. We now call her Harriet for certain reasons (specifically because she is a mother right now and her husband is named Jerry. What reactions you would get if you said your budgie was laying eggs and its name is Harry! :p)
