Well, he wouldn't really sit still long enough for me to have a good look but they look a rich blue colour to my eye.

I think that the sex may have to wait. In a recessive pied, pinky purple is generally male but if there is any hint of brown I would have some reservations about painting the room blue just yet.

LOL! Okay. I'll guess I'll just wait then. He seems like a boy sometimes (is trying to talk, imitates easily and very friendly), yet lately he's been chewing on everything... newspaper, me. He's stopped trying to bite me this week though, as soon as I made the post here, he stopped! Like he knew!

Well Mika is about 11 months in this picture so she is an older budgie and she was coming into breeding condition at that time. But i was looking at the pictures of Snow in the pictures section, and the cere looks light brown to me in most of them.
Thanx for the sweet comment, i will let them know!

if the cheek patches are more blue then he/she is most likely mauve

Do birds like this usually keep a white head or go yellow? Or no telling what will happen?

YAY! I really hope so. All my other guys got yellow heads, and I think he's so cute white. If he would let me touch his pretty wings, I would cuddle him in joy..... hehe.
