Default Help identifying sex and color mutation

Hello All,

Today I went on a budgie rescue. A friend contacted me and said that someone brought their bird in to be euthanized because they just got it and their son is allergic!!! So I took this little baby. I know it's young, and I think it's a double factor dominant pied, but I have NO IDEA! Lol It's light yellow and either violet or gray?? Any help identifying its sex and color is appreciated. Poor baby! It will be spoiled here with me now! Thanks in advance!

You have a beautiful and very young budgie girl, it's clear she hasn't had her first moult yet, making her just shy of 3 months old.
From the pics, it seems she is a grey yellow face type II dominant pied budgie.

I'm very glad you have saved this little budgie and she is now able to have a long and happy life with you!

I agree with Aluz, she is a very pretty young girl! Her mutation is grey yellowface II normal dominant pied

I'm so glad you were able to take her in and give her the long and happy life she deserves! What's her name?

Thanks everyone. She's so sweet. I haven't named her yet because I wasn't sure of her sex. Let the fun of naming begin!!!

Can you show me in the picture below how you can determine its a female? Maybe this will help me in getting better at sexing...

Looks to me like a mauve not gray.

You can determine gender by looking at the budgie's cere (upper part of the beak where the nostrils are located).

Young female budgies, like your little one will have very light blue mingled with white ceres. Usually you can see prominent white circles around the nostrils, as time goes by, the white will spread more evenly and while closing to maturity the white will progressively turn tan till it gets dark brown in colour.

Young male budgies will have uniform pinkish/purplish ceres that will turn royal blue in colour upon reaching maturity. There are certain colour mutations where the budgies will keep the immature pinkish coloured cere throughout their lives, example of this are recessive pied, lutinos/albinos, dark eyed clear budgies, etc.

You can see examples of both genders by taking a look at the stickies at this section of the forums.
