Default Lemondrop?

Hi guys, meet Lemondrop

Piper is extremely quiet most of the day, and with me working so much I was getting worried that he wasn't handling the transition well. My store just some budgies in and after watching these for awhile we took this one home to be Piper's friend. I clipped the wings myself to make sure it can still fly okay (I didnt want what happened to Piper to be the case here too). At the store I thought it was a female...but now I'm not so sure. There is white light there and I thought there was a very noticeable white ring around the nostrils, but the yellow light in the room doesn't help now. It definitely looked different than one I could tell was for sure a male.





I feel like the white is more noticeable on the cere in these:



This little one chirped the whole way home, and its such a cute little song! Noticeably more melodic than either Dewey or Piper's. It's in a quarantine cage for a little while (I know you're not supposed to just introduce another bird into its cage). As soon as Lemondrop sang though, Piper went NUTS and started singling louder than I've heard him before! He was jumping from perch to perch in excitement to be around another bird

Also, I don't know if you guys can determine age yet or not, but if it helps the black bars go all the way to the cere, although they're somewhat faded.

You have a gorgeous little boy Although it does show some paleness, I see a lot of purple and pink indicating a male. Since he's recessive pied, it will stay this colour his whole life. He's a beauty!

Also, to help confirm this, you could take some pictures in natural light with no flash

It's so sweet that Piper and Lemondrop are already talking! Congratulations on your new addition

Congratulations on your new little cutie!
While the picture quality isn't exactly ideal, I'm seeing an overall bluish mingled with white cere, making me believe you have a young budgie girl.
