Default How to tell approx age of albino budgie

My sister had this little one fly into her house. She is a little albino and I thought that she looked quite young. Is there anyway to tell the approximate age of an albino budgie as they don't have the normal baby bars to go by, not sure if she has iris rings or not.

I'm glad your sister managed to rescue the albino budgie! And you can tell her that the little one is a boy. I'm seeing quite the purplish cere.
From that pic I can see the little one is also moulting. Regarding his age, due to the lack of markings it's more difficult to give an accurate estimate on age.
Looking at the iris development on the eyes can be very helpful and would be the best indicator of age in this case. The more clear white they are, the older the budgie is. Another aspect to take into account would be the size of the toenails, if they are all fairly short then chances are high this is a young, as in not yet adult budgie.
