Norman is on a distinguished road
Default 1 year old lutino, curious of sex

hello all! in my household we kinda settled with the name Norman for our budgie when we picked him out. We knew it was had to sex a lutino bird. He is now just over a year and we think it is far along enough to ask if anyone can tell the sex Norman has not had a brown cere before. When the cere is viewed from the side it looks pearly, kinda like opal. Sometimes the cere has very very tiny veins in it that are pink which makes it look more pink some days.

You have a beautiful female.

Adult male lutinos have a smooth pinkish/purple cere.

Norman is gorgeous! There is a little group here.. folks that named their budgies a gender specific name that turned out to be an oops! I have a female named Oscar and I know there are several others here with the same thing.
Norman might qualify to be in this select group???

Interesting, I thought Norman looked like a boy! I would have expected a year old hen to have had some brown colour at some point and have a rougher, chalky look rather than a smooth shiny cere.

My first thought was Boy. I also have little lutino that I THINK is a boy, however after reading that you may have a girl I started to have my doubts about my own little guy. My boy(?) is roughly 5 or 6 years old and has kept his lavender/pink/white cere. He looks just like the description in the link that says what the girls look like. But his behavior, to me, really make me lean to boy still especially around his friend.

Thanks for posting this. I felt kinda sheepish for always assuming that because he didn't have the normal female cere others do he must be a boy.

It's a fair assumption to make, and I think you are right, hens have the same type of ceres in all varieties.

In all of those pics Norman looks very much like a female not in breeding condition to me.
I have had and bred plenty of lutinos/albinos of both genders and generally the boys have a translucent pinkish cere while immature females or females not in breeding condition will have the light bluish mingled with white ceres.
Your Norman even appears to already have a slight tan colour around the nostrils making me believe she is a female.
While the norm is for females to get the mature dark brown coloured ceres by the time they reach 6 - 7 months old, in some rare cases it can take longer, even more than 1 year to first get into breeding condition.
