Hi!
Seen threads on people asking about this. I’m also curious to know about my baby Pearl. Going by the cere, I think it’s a boy?

Photos taken both indoor and outdoor. He’s kind of bluish gray. What can you make out abt his mutations?

Thanks much!

I'm honestly leaning female, but I'm an amateur at this :)
As for mutation...I can tell you that s/he is grey (which is the best budgie color, fyi). :)

Hahaha why is grey the best colour?

Thanks all! My vet also guess that Pearl is a girl. Hahaha I’m hoping for a little boy though, all my pets are females 😅 (not that it really matters, just saying lol).
Ok, so I was guessing myself that Pearl is opaline grey. The cheek patches are bluish grey and the wings have grey in it.

Thanks for the confirmation!

Hey guys!

Pearl is about 3 months plus now! Just lost the barrings on the head
Do you supposed Pearl is a boy? The cere is getting more blue each day, but there is some white area around the nostrils. He’s getting more and more vocal, and regurgitates occasionally.

Pearl is most definitely a girl :) Her cere is even the textbook color of pale beigish-blue for females. Summer is a cutie! S/he looks really young still though, is she eating on her own?

Okok! Hahaha I’m still hoping for a boy.

Yah, Summer is 5 weeks old. She pecks at millets and pellets already. But I’m still hand feeding her.

5 weeks is still pretty young.. please make sure that you are feeding her properly :)
Coincidence that her mutation contains “pearls”..? ;)

Summer is beautiful. I would have that band on Pearl's leg removed, it is really large and actually looks like a handcuff and something could easily get caught in it and cause injury to the leg.

Oh thanks for ur advice. I was worried about it too. Thankfully so far no problems. But that’s the smallest that can be engraved, and I couldn’t remove it, the hinge is very stiff. I will ask my vet for help on the next visit.
