Default Budgie gender...

Well I introduced Ivy to the forums awhile ago and since then she has become much more vocal...only one loud chirp and tone. The two males have fed her before and done their dance for her. And every single physical aspect of her says female.

Recently I've walked by unnoticed by Ivy and seen her bobbing her head up and down exactly like the males and hitting her beak against the bars or random toys. As per her vocals still like the other two females I have but Ivy just happens to have a much higher pitch. You know it is her when she lets out her chirp. Though generally she is quiet but I am doubting myself more and more on the gender. If Ivy ends up a male XD guess I will change his name to Nigma or Eddie/Edward.

Females just like the males have the ability to bob their heads and feed their mates, the same goes with chirping/singing. Two out of my current four females sing as much as the males. It all depends on their personalities. Gender is mostly determined by cere colour not general behaviour.

Also two pictures of Ivy....the best I could manage. One has a flash and one with just the natural light of the room. Her head and some of her cere has a pinkish tint to it due to the mineral chew in the cage. She loves to chew on them.

Yes I know they do...thought it was a sign they were happy? But since I haven't had that much experience with the female budgies that aspect of their personallity and behaviour is still new to me.

Her cere color is tan with a darkish brown color...though currently covered in pink XD

I have merged your last two posts into one.

And yes, budgies bob their heads when happy/excited and also when courting their mates.
From those pics there is no doubt that your Ivy is a beautiful female.

Ivy is a very pretty little girl and apparently quite happy and content since she's head bobbing and playing with her toys.
