Default Hello To All

I have now 3 budgies. The first is 1 and a half year old, yellow budgie, Miki and we buy him as male badgie but some are saying now that he is a female budgie, second one is Kiki, blue budgie almost 1 year old we got him as female but for that one we are sure is male. Now the new one i dont know how old it is i have it 1 week, he has white/pink nose, loves to dig in to the seed. I have a picture from Miki and Kiki, i want to know if which one is male which one is female. Miki is a lot afraid from Kiki and they are in separated cages cause Kiki wants to bite Miki foot. From the third budgie i will send you soon as i get one, he is still afraid from us i dont want to scare him.
Thx in advance.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

From the first picture posted, both budgies appear to be male.
Male budgies have a smooth transclucent pinkish/purple cere.
The second picture appears to have been taken with a flash which washes out the color of the cere.

To determine gender accurately for Miki, please post a full-frontal close-up picture of the cere taken in natural light. Do not use flash and do not have the bird in direct sunlight.

I recommend you remove the plastic and/or wooden dowel perches in the budgies' cage and replace them with natural wood perches of varying diameters to reduce the risks of pressure sores.

This link gives better options for perch selections:

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi
Miki and Kiki are both males.
Miki (yellow budgie in top photo) looks to be a recessive pied mutation, and as such, is likely to keep the pink in his cere as he matures. This may be what is confusing the people who are telling you that he is female.

Bibiís cere appears to be very pale; from that photo I suspect that Bibi is a female.
More photos of Bibi (no flash, no direct sunlight) will help.

If that photo is an accurate representation of the colour of her cere, then Bibi is female.

The links that FaeryBee has posted above, are an excellent source of information that will help you create the best environment for these birds, and also advise you how to avoid unwanted breeding.
If you have further questions after reading, please post.
