You all were so helpfull with finding the gender of my little birdie. Now my niece has decided to get her own after falling in love with mine. Can you all help me determine her little guys sex. I said male.

Reason: Add more.
'Morning ManWithGills, yeah based on the thumbnail image attachment, your little green/yellow guy is male.
The cere (area above the budgie hook-nose beak), typically identifies male and female. StarlingWings was very helpful in this area early on when I joined up.
On males, the cere is almost always some hue of blue. On females, it'll differ from reddish or beige; some even have described a pinkish hue.
The only time this technique caused me concern is when the third budgie I got was still a little young to determine...early on her cere appeared light-light blue, so I thought male. In the past two-to-three months, her cere did alter color to that of a tan-reddish appearance, indicating female.
