Default Pretty white budgie - boy/girl?

I'm considering adding this little pretty to my flock... I have a feeling it's a girl, but can anyone more experienced give me insight?

Also, any idea how old it could be?

Thank you so much

Frontal closeup's in natural light (no flash) are best for sexing. From those pic's I would say hen, let's see what other's think and don't hesitate to post more pic's...

Also looks like a girl to me with the whites around her nostril.

What a pretty little one! I would say he is a boy, actually. I see a lot of purplish-pink on the cere even though there is white around the nostrils, but I don't think the cere is pale enough to be a hen.

Of course, everyone else could prove me wrong! But that's what I think.

Ok so I've just been sent some more pics and now I'm definitely thinking girl - what do you think? Also does she look like a regular dark eyed clear or do you think she has some very light pattern?

Also, with the last photo I'm thinking:
Lutino boy,
Dark eyed clear boy,
Creamino on the bottom girl

... does that sound right to you guys?


I just added a closeup of the yellows... could the lutino be a girl do you think? I know they're not the best lighting but it's the best I've got. I really like the white hen but I want a little boy too - do you think the lutino is a safe bet for a boy or is the DEC the only boy here?

And can anyone guess their age at all?

Final question: Do inos get iris rings??? I'm so confused, I feel like I've seen adult inos who looked like babies... does it vary?

Thanks guys

Yes, now with the new pictures it looks like a girl. I can't really tell on the others, the Lutino could be either, the one next to the Lutino is also a creamino and looks like a boy, and the creamino on the bottom looks like a girl.

Like I said, with those three it's hard to tell without closeups!

Because of the color of the leg's/feet, and what look's on my screen like some very light suffusion, I think the bird is a DF Spangle Hen, not DEC. I am no expert though. The pic of the three together all look like hen's to me but not the best picture for sexing and again, I have been wrong before...

He is a DF Spangle...

That bird you are looking at will get iris ring's if she is a DF Spangle, or keep the clear black eye's if she is a DEC...

With these pictures my guess, very cute little lady(appx 4 months) if I were you I would have asked the questions after adding to my flock

Normally yellow face white based ino is called creamino not yellow face white based DEC or df spangle

Yes inos get iris ring, something wrong with the beak of this ino for treatment and trimming please ask the owner to take him to a vet
