Default Boy or girl

I have gotten a lot of different responses as to whether it is a boy or girl. the photos I am including have natural light as people have requested. I just brought home this budgie yesterday evening and he / she already seems to be fairly hand tame. I can easily take her out of the cage without her flying away and she seems content. she does have a vet visit on Monday, since I have brought her home I have cleaned her vent several times but every time she relieve herself fecal matter stay stuck as if she is having diarrhea. But her stools look solid I am Not sure what is going on but I would rather be safe than sorry. This is my first parakeet, and about 8 years. I used to own three of them but never did the researchto know what they were all about. Before I bought this one I had done tons of research for about a week before purchasing 1. Now I'm just trying to figure out if it is male or female. Like I said 50% have told me maLe and 50% have told me female I would like to find a name that fits this sweet budgie. please let me know what you guys think

His/her cage (with home made toys and perches )






please tell me why you think it is the gender you do also. It might give me details as to what to look for in person as pictures might have different coloration.
It is hard for me to tell based off of a chart because here cere is both blue and purple and kind of white... its hard for me to tell.

Welcome to the forums!
Your budgie does have somewhat of a tricky cere. And you are absolutely right, especially when it comes to the trickier ceres, nothing beats actually seeing it for real, as opposed to photos.
Based from those pictures I'm leaning towards girl. I'm seeing a powdery light bluish cere mingled with white and white circles around the nostril area.

Young budgie boys will usually have uniform deep pinkish/purplish ceres with no hint of white.

I also think it might be a girl because of the light blue cere.

Your budgie appears to be a quite beautiful girl!
Have you named her yet?

I saw in your entry for BOTM that you've settled on Darla.

I do like that name -- I actually have a sibling named Darla.
