Default Tundra (boy) almost 6 months still pink cere

So my boy tundra is almost (or is) 6 months old now. He is at least 5 1/2 to 6 I believe. He got his 'big boy spots' in around his face this month but still no cere change. I think Tiki had cere change by this time.

I know they're all different in how they go through puberty just like humans but if his cere isn't changing over to blue what does it say about his mutation ?

Some pics of him . Pardon the veggies stuck on his beak l. He does love them

While I'm not an expert on what's supposed to happen at what age, I think 6 months is still fairly young, and not uncommon for some to not have changed yet at that point.

My Chip is almost a YEAR old, and he still has "baby cere" even though he's been through his second molt with adult colors. Dark eyes too, so in Chip's case anyway (not sure about Tundra), he is split to recessive pied, which can cause a delay in cere change. I'll be interested in seeing when his cere finally does change.

I'm sure members who know budgie genetics will be along to post about Tundra shortly.

He's adorable I agree, 6 months is definitely not considered unusual for budgies to retain their baby cere.

His should have changed by the time he's a year old.

Thanks guys! We think he's pretty handsome too!

That's good to know. It will be interesting to see the change and what color it settles down into.
