Default Whats this budgies story

Can anyone tell me what they suspect the sex of this budgie to be? I'll call her a girl, because she appears to be a red eyed lacewing, which came from the nest of 2 opaline normal blue parents, so genetically from all accounts she would have to have inherited the lacewing from a split lacewing father. She is quite pally with one of my young cock birds, as though they have an aviary romance going on, but from all that I can see from her cere she looks to be a boy. I have heard that lacewings mature at a slower rate than other varieties so maybe that has something to do with it. If it is a boy which it strongly appears, then It makes me suspect that it may be a fallow, and inherited genes from two split fallow parents. the pictures are of her at 3 months old, at that age you usually can get a good guide to what sex a young bird is, but this one has me wondering still.

I'm no expert but I say fallow because the markings on his wings are so dark and his cere is boy all the way. Gorgeous bird! Especially in that last shot!

I was thinking possibly a fallow, but this bird shows no sign of any body color, which is usually prevalent in the fallows, where they show some shade of pale blue, and more darker shade blue on their rump. This bird is basicaly just white with the cinnamon wing markings and slight violet suffusion over the white. All his color attributes point to it being a lacewing, but then it would have to be a hen to have shown up in the nest that it did, with the color variety of the 2 parent birds.

Any luck Nev will show up and give me his opinion, as he breeds both the fallows and lacewings, would like to hear his thoughts.

Looking at the cere colour, I see it's very purplish so my guess would be male. But if its colour mutation is sex linked then I'm most likely wrong. I'm just basing from cere colour.

personally I think it looks like a boy myself, judging from its cere color. but its got me beat on how it could be, because of the pair it came from and the genetic implications of sex linkage. but then if it were a fallow that could be a possibility from the parentage, but I also believe its actually a lacewing, so I'm totally confused how it gets to be a boy based on the lacewing genetic inheritance factor. It is a lovely bird, and maybe through breeding I can determine better what it actually is. we'll just have to wait and see.
