Default does budgies mutation effect cere colour?

What mutation is this budgie? I suck at mutations
And will its mutation effect the colour of its cere?
I think its a male... will its cere still turn to blue?

Oh and in the pics it kind of looks blue.. put its actually more of a purple

thanks

Your budgie is a spangle cobalt male. His cere will turn blue when he matures

The mutations that cause the male's cere to stay pink are: albino. lutino, recessive pied. fallow & lacewing

Is the guy at the top opaline as well Nev? Or is that just the lighting and shadows making him look like one?



Beautiful boy you have there Sarah.

Each color and 3 dark factors:

Blue: sky blue (0 dark factors), cobalt (1 dark factor) and mauve (2 dark factors).
Green: light green (0 dark factors), dark green (1 dark factor) and olive (2 dark factors).

The violet and grey color-adding genes also affect coloring.

IMHO the bird in the first picture is spangle cobalt violet male. But I'm not an expert like Nev.

Charlie is a normal sky blue male.

I agree, your new baby is a male cobalt violet spangle

Charlie looks like a normal cobalt to me.

Here are some pictures of the mutations Nev mentioned that do not have the typical male cere color Exceptions To The Rule When Sexing Male Budgies
