Default Do budgies ceres change colour for other reason than becoming an adult?

I have a male budgie (a latino one) although i'm not sure because he's yellow although has some green on his chest and his eyes are black rather than red, although his cere is pink. so i guess he's a mix between a latino and a parakeet. anyways, i'm pretty sure that he reached his 8 months now or is about to, although i've noticed something rather facinating! I've read that Latinos would never have the colour of their ceres changed, although my bugie's cere sometimes tilts to the colour light blue. and then later it's back pink. i thought the reason might be the different temperatures of the room that i keep my budgie in. My room is rather colder than the other room but sometimes it gets fine (becuz the AC is set on automatic) However the other room is fixed on one temperature. The first room is where my budgie's would turn a little blue, and i deduced that it might have to be becuz of the cold weather? i really don't know. i've tried searching the internet on something similar but i didn't find anything at all! and can budgies get used to one fixed temperature? Thank you.

Welcome to talk budgies. Can you post a pic of your bird for us to see ? By your description, your bird sound's more like a pied than a lutino. If you post a pic I am sure some of our excellent mutation and gender folk's will help out...

Hi there and welcome to Talk Budgies!

Your budgie sounds like a recessive pied--sometimes they can be almost all yellow with only a little green, they will have no iris rings, and their cere will stay light pink their whole life in males. If you post a picture, we'd love to help you with his mutation!

Ceres don't change in males from blue (or pink in recessive pieds and Lutinos) unless they have a hormonal problem or diet deficiency. Some variation is normal, but if it suddenly turns a different color it could be one of these problems.

In all females, the cere changes from pale whitish blue to brown based on when they are in breeding "condition".

I can't wait to see pictures of your little one and see you both around the forums!
It's great to have you with us

I am no export at telling the gender of a young budgie but I think you have a baby boy I can see the purplish cere in the second photo. Yes budgies cere does change when they get older. The male budgie has a purplish blue cere and the female has pale white with pale blue and when she gets older it turns to a brownish colour... Welcome to talk budgies... Your budgie is so beautiful...

He's stunning! He is definitely a little boy, it is normal to have some variation between bluish and pinkish, in those pictures it looks more purple.
Peter is very handsome!!
Question: Does he have any barring at all or just the little bit of green on his belly?
Because he looks like a Double Factor Spangle with suffusion!

Certainly have to agree with the crowd on your bird being a boy. I am not even gonna attempt a guess on mutation. Beautiful feller whatever he is...
