Question What colour cere would a male of this mutation have?

Hi guys

I am going to look at a possible budgie for my hubby Daniel this afternoon, after my attempts at rescue fell through

We are going to look at a budgie which was described to us as "Blue with a yellow face and white cheeks".

Now, I am clueless about genetics, but I know that sometimes genders aren't easy to tell with certain mutations. Eg males of certain mutations will have pink ceres.

Does anyone know what colour cere a male of this particular mutation should have?

The place we are going isn't sure what gender it is, and I'm scared I won't be able to tell. We are looking for a male to balance out our flock. Although, Daniel said if it turns out to be a girl we can just get two more boys I wonder if he was joking...

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I think it should be blue. The only mutations that have different are the INO's (Lutino, Albino, and lacewing) I hope I am not wrong. It should be all blue though.

Your welcome. But yes BLUE is what your looking for. yea how exciting I wish I could go with. Every time go to my friend who is a breeder I come home with a new bird. I went from 2 to 10 in no time lol. I only have one that is not from him. But the one that isn't is from his really good friend.

blue for males and brown/pink for females.
I don't think this budgie sounds like one of the mutations that has a different coloured cere.

Thanks

I forgot to mention, it's a baby budgie. I'm guessing that means the cere could be slightly pinkish but with blue around the edges?

The cere should be a solid pink with no hint of white on it. Depending on the age it may show some small signs of blue on the cere.

The only reasons for it to be a different colour cere would be a recessive pied, and if it is then it would still be a solid pink
Good Luck

Your description doesn't give enough information to identify the mutation but if it is a baby a male's cere of any mutation would be pink and a female's cere would be whitish around the nostrils

I would guess the cere would show the normal blue or brown. By the description you will be looking at a normal blue yellow face bird but I might be wrong.

I know, that's all the info the person gave me sorry

We got the baby anyway, Daniel fell in love as soon as he saw him/her. I will post pics in another thread, though they aren't very clear, I can't find my camera so I took them on my phone...
