Default Male or Female?

Last year for Christmas, I got two budgies. They were both normal. Yoshi, my green male, and sky, my sky blue female. Recently, Sky passed because of lead poisoning RIP. Yoshi was very loving and friendly, so I decided to get a new budgie. We went to Petsmart (Sorry! I know.) and found a young and friendly budgie. She was in a glass cage with ten other budgies and she was feeding them all. Her cere was pink so I, having no knowledge of mutations, assumed that it was a female. We brought her home and introduced them outside of their cages. Yoshi was very welcoming and friendly. We've had her for a while and I started looking up mutations and sexing budgies and now I think that she could be male.
Audrey is a recessive pied with a dark pink cere.

Hi there,

It sounds like you have 2 males by your description! If the cere is a solid pink, then your new little one is a male. Also, Audrey being recessive pied (males keep immature cere color), would be male as well if the cere is pink.

Of course, the best thing to do here would be to let us see clear cere pics in natural lighting. Besides, we just like cute budgie pics . The best way to share pics is to use a photo sharing service such as Imgur.

We have a ton of resources here to take advantage of. Our Stickies and Articles contain answers to many basic questions, and we recommend all forum members to take a look into this information. If you still need help after reading, we’re here to help.

Hi there and to the forums!

Julie has given you excellent advice Male recessive pied budgies keep a pink cere their entire life. Additionally, any time you see a pink cere with no white, it's either a young male budgie or a male budgie of a mutation that does not get a dark blue cere (like recessive pied).

Pics of Audrey would be great to confirm!

You've come to the best possible place to stay updated on the very best of budgie care practices. Be sure to read through the forum's many budgie articles and "stickies" to ensure you're up to date on everything!

If you have any questions after reading through things, be sure to ask as we'd love to help

We hope to see you around the forums, and to meet your two birds as well!

Good thing you submitted pics . I thought I’d read that both your budgies had pink ceres . So now it’s been clarified

Thank you so much. I was really surprised when you said that Yoshi was a hen. I've had them backwards this whole time! < Thank you for getting back with me so quickly!

You are aware that Yoshi is not a pied, correct?
