Default Budgie ageing help?

Hey people! I'm having trouble aging Spencer. I was told he was between 6 and 10 months old, but I'm confused because of different mutations.. He has a royal Blue cere, no bars on his head and a fully developed iris ring (I think).
I will attach a pic, help would be appreciated!


Thanks guys

After the first moult it's trickier to accurately determine gender, and from the pics Spencer appears to already have the white irises on his eyes, meaning he has reached adulthood. There is no sure way to tell his age at this point, they usually get the fully developed irises by the time they reach 1 year of age, so Spencer can be 1 year old or older.

Yes, it is hard to tell actual age after iris rings and cere have developed. Who did you get him from? They may be able to tell you how long they had him or when he was born so you could make a better estimate
