Hi there and welcome to the forums!

Ooh, this is a hard one! I also can’t tell for sure but due to the white around the nares I do think she may be female! In a week or two it should become more obvious, so if you posted an updated photo then that would be great~

Meanwhile, you’ve come to a great place to learn even more about the best of budgie care practices!
Be sure to read through the forums’ many budgie articles and “stickies” to ensure you’re up to date on everything, and if you have any questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we’d love to help!

Hope to see you around! 👋

Hi😁 Thanks for the reply much appreciated. Hopefully in a week or so it will become much clearer and i would love to give an update. I was just looking for an opinion as i do have an older male with the baby and was wondering if it would be better to get another youngster along with her(presuming she’s a female). I will definitely Read through the forums and thank you so much for your help :)

Hi Everyone! Here’s the update on my lil budgie, these pictures were taken about a week and half from the other ones in the original post. This has really gotten me in a twist as im still so unsure of what this little rascal is. Any insights would be appreciated. P.s all photos were taken in natural lighting 😀

Hi all this is an overdue two week update on my budgie. I am still so unsure of what this little one is to be. I have attached all the recent images and all were taken in natural lighting. Advice would be appreciated:)

I believe he’s a boy! The shape and tint of the cere to me seem very male despite the slight paleness around the nares. What a cutie~ I’m interested to see how the color of the cere develops!
