Default Gender and color mutation?

I'm assuming it's too soon for his gender, but it never hurts to ask. Gallifrey is a light yellow with white spots on his cheeks and white on his underside. He also has a blue spot between his wings, you can see it when he flaps them,and another on his tummy. It was hard to get s good picture because he was very excited at the moment.

You have a beautiful budgie girl, no doubt there!
I don't see any blue on her. If she had red eyes, I'd say she is creamino budgie (yellow face albino).

His eyes are black. and he's three months old. is it okay to call him a him still? Even if he is biologically a girl... Just got used to saying he.

To have a more accurate guess at her mutation, better photos will be needed, preferably one showing her entire body from the front, face towards camera so we can fully see the chest and tummy area, and another one of her back, showing the wings and rump.

That is up to you, if you want to refer to her as a him and it's not confusing to you, then go ahead. I think you could still get used to the change.
I raised a lovebird thinking he was a she and only after 5 months did I realize my mistake. And even though to this day he has a girly name (couldn't change it because he knows his name and responds to it), I refer to him as a he.

I'll try to get better pictures of him, but he's very moving around a lot. So we'll see.

I called my little one a he for a few months as well, but got used to saying "she"
Maybe if you call her "Gallifreya"?
Definitely an adorable little girl And I agree with Aluz about the mutation

I can now see the bit of blue on her, since she has the fully black eyes I'd say she is a sky blue yellow face recessive pied budgie. If she doesn't keep the fully black eyes and develop the irises then she could be a double factor dominant pied budgie.
She must have other characteristics that make her not have any markings and the surest way of knowing exactly what she is would be to breed her.

Could she be a DF spangle YF type 2?

I have a budgie the exact same but without YF and he's a DF spangle but has a tainted blue base of his tail.....(his cere is blue)

Just a thought, i'm no expert
