I've read that most lutino's are females. Can anyone confirm this? :dunno:

Lutino and Albino are sex linked mutations. occuring on the x chromosome.
As female budgies have xy is more chance that you will get and Albino/Lutino chick.
to produce a Lutino/Albino the father will have to be Lutino/Albino or split for the mutation

so yes most lutinos and albino are female, but not all

very cute budgie. :D

I'm not sure how much of that I understand, but I do appreciate the reply. Both parents are lutino. What are the chances this baby will be male? Will the cere eventually turn blue if male? If so, by what age?

you will have male and female lutino budgies.
A male lutino/albino will not have a blue cere but a pink one all of his life. A female will have a normal brown cere:)

If the parents are both lutino the chances of this chick being male are 50%.

With lutinos if the mother is not a lutino (or albino) the lutino (& albino) chicks will all be female
