Hi everyone, I was hoping you could help me figure out what my new little budgie is. I never thought I would get a red-eyed budgie, but this little one just caught my eye. The pics are a bit dark, so you can't tell very easily, but the eyes are a dark ruby red color. Plus, I really liked its personality, it seemed pretty mellow and unafraid of people. Also, I thought it would compliment my other bird, Bravo. After looking at mutations, I think it may be a creamino. Do you think so? If not, what is it????? Also, do you think it's a male or female? It is tough to tell from the cere, but its vacalizations sound more female to me. I'm hoping it's a girl, cause that's what I wanted in case I ever decide to breed her with my male (of course only when they are of age and I have educated myself about breeding!). I think I will name it Perry, but I'm still undecided. If I get a clearer idea of its sex, I may choose a more gender appropriate name Here is my new baby...
That is a stunning budgie and if I saw him at a store I would have brought him home even though I do not intend on buying anymore. Looks like a creamino but I am not sure if they have those wing markings so someone else with knowledge will have to answer. I would also say boy but I am not sure what the cere should be on this mutation. So... I am no help and all words but I can tell you that has to be the prettiest budgie I have ever seen
Edit See the answer always comes when I am rambling

You have a yellow face lacewing. It is quite young and the cinnamon markings will get darker after it has moulted. Can't be sure about the sex. I think it's female, if it is the cere will lighten over the next few weeks. If it is male it's cere will stay pink all it's life
