Question What kind of mutation is this? Any info about age and gender?

This beautiful lady (I assume) had landed on a tree in my garden. I'm already owned by a handsome budgie, and they have been getting along pretty well after the quarantine period.

I would like to have some help in identifying her age, sex and age if possible.

Finally, I just love this forum and I really admire the contributions in here <3

Note: I'm unable to upload the pics from my phone. However, they can be seen in the following imgur link:

You new budgie is a very handsome little male

He's either a blue pied or a mauve/violet factored pied.
He's either very young or a recessive pied because he has no iris rings.
One of our experts on mutations will be able to give you better information than I.

It's a gorgeous little boy!
He is a sky blue (maybe sf violet), yellowface I, (opaline?) recessive pied little boy, and all the more handsome for it
I would guess he's no more than 6 months old because the bars on his head are fading but he doesn't have the "grown up" look yet. The cere is of no help because as I'm almost positive he's recessive pied, his cere will stay pink his whole life.
I hope this helps, hopefully some others will pitch in! Congrats on the new addition!

Are you very sure, like absolutely sure sure that she's a boy :'( I'm in denial right now. Her name fitted with her pretty well.

How did you know? The cere isn't blue.

Oh boy...

Not all males cere's are blue some mutations make the cere stay a pink
If he was a female his cere would be starting to go white as it's only the females who cere turns brown, no matter the mutation

In conclusion:
Females - white to brown cere(but also can have light blue if out of breeding condition)
Males - blue or pink cere

Recessive pied, Yellowface type 1, Cobalt boy. Could have a sf violet in him as well. Hard to see on pictures. Definitely not opaline.

And between 6 months and a year old. His next molt will be the 1 year molt.

Your little one is definitely a male.

Here is a link that will help you understand how with certain mutations a male's budgie cere will remain pinkish/purple for his whole life.

Could well be a Recessive Pied but it wouldn't surprise me if it was a combination pied though...something about it looks like a combination of Dominant Pied and Recessive Pied...
