Default Sexing Lutino Budgie?

Iv had Mishka for around 2 and a half years (maybe 3), Iv always assumed she was female. But Im not sure since I recently found out shes Lutino and her cere has never turned a brown colour and has stayed the same since I got her.

Ill attatch some photos of her. I was hoping to breed her at some point..but now Im not sure if she is a he.

Please let me know what you think if you know. Her cere is a blueish, greyish, bageish? haha I cant explain.

Hi there and welcome to the forums!

From the photos I'm seeing a uniform purplish cere so you have a boy there.
Since he is a lutino male, he will keep that immature colour on his cere for the rest of his life.

Regarding breeding, it's not advisable to go through this route unless a person has a very good grasp of the species and real-life experience in budgie ownership. That combined with the in depth research into the subject will make a person more prepared and able to assist the breeding pair and future chicks more adequately: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-new-old.html

Default Thanks!

Ah thank you! I do have experience with Budgies and I can normally sex them fine, Iv just never had a Lutino before. But since I have two males I cant breed them anyway.

Thank you for the reply! I now know she is now a he haha.

You're very welcome! I'm sure it's going to take you a while to get used to refer to Mishka as a male. At least his name is also common for a boy.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
