Albino Budgie
Is my albino budgie male or female? At the pet store they told me it was female. Sorry for the bad quality! Image is here

Sorry I can't see a photo.

Hello and welcome to the forums :wave:

The picture quality really isn't the best, but I'm seeing a very purplish-pink cere which indicates a young male :) Unfortunately, many pet stores assume that if the cere isn't blue, it's a boy, which is totally misleading, as young males have pink/purple ceres and young females have whitish-blue ceres.

Congratulations on your new boy and I hope to see more of him! It's great to have you with us on the forums and feel free to ask about anything you're unsure of, as we'd be more than happy to help!
Does he have a name yet?

Welcome to Talk Budgies! :) I agree, you do have a cute budgie boy there.
And since he is albino, the cere will keep that deep pinkish colour throughout his life.

Your little boy is very cute! :D

Cant see the photo but I have a female albino budgie and she is the cutest 😍! Congrats.

Your albino looks like a boy to me. His cere looks pink - purple, so that should mean male. (He's adorable! :) )

I believe your bird is a boy.
