Default Buying a new friend

I'm looking to buy a new friend for my male budgie. The one I've found is very young, it has a uniform purple cere and slightly blue feet. Do you think it's a male?

The lighting and angle on that photo aren't the best for gender ID.
If the little one has an even purplish colour on the cere (no hint of white) then you have a male there. He's gorgeous!

Thank you. I have posted some more pictures if you don't mind taking a look at them.

These new photos are excellent and a perfect example of the translucent (see through) quality on the ceres of young male budgies.
Indeed you have a budgie boy there!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that unless this new budgie comes from the same pet store you recently got your first budgie, then you will have to quarantine this new fellow into a different room and cage away from your other budgie.
This is done as a safety measure in order to prevent a potential illness carried by the new bird to be passed onto the other budgie.
You will find detailed information on this link: https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...necessary.html

This one should also be helpful: https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...o-budgies.html

The new little boy is simply precious!
Have you brought him home yet and does he have a name?
