We have staff members who are excellent at determining genders and I've contacted them so they will see your thread when they are next on-line.
They will be able to tell you for certain what gender King is. Many veterinarians (unless they are Avian Veterinarians) are unable to determine a budgie's gender.
Body size doesn't make a difference with regard to your budgies' gender.

Some budgies will talk and others will not. It depends on the bird.
I had one that was talking quite a lot until he was introduced to his current flockmates. Now he has reverted to only "budgie talk". LOL

Oh ok thank you so much.... Please do...

Hi there and welcome to the forums~

King is a male budgie from the photos you've posted :) Since as FaeryBee mentioned above, you've indicated that his cere is very purple in real life, I do believe he's a male.

You've gotten great advice and resources above from FaeryBee. Since you have a mixed-gender pair, please be sure to discourage breeding! It's actually pretty easy to do, so no worries there.

Please be sure to read through all the links and other information provided to ensure you're up to date on the best of budgie care practices! If you have any questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

We hope to see you around, and please keep us posted on how things go!

Cheers 👋

Well, don't worry - even if you do everything you can do discourage breeding and they still mate, you can just throw away any eggs that appear. They do NOT have any babies in them until many days of constant incubation, and there won't be anything in them before that period of time. It would be the same as throwing away a chicken egg from the grocery store, so you're not harming any babies. Besides, this isn't very common after taking the right precautions, so I think you'll be good ;)

I love this picture, Tinkerbell is posing for the camera and King is like "OK I'll sit here just for a second while you take the picture, then I'm going about my own business." LOL It is the little bit of a whitish color that seems to be around King's nares that makes the gender questionable. Let's see what our mutation experts have to say.

Great cage set up, it's nice that they are comfortable being out of their cage.

StarlingWings has already let you know that King is a male so you are all with regard to their genders.

If you'd like, you may create a "King and Tinkerbell Ongoing Picture Thread" in the Pictures section of the forum to share pictures of them.

Additionally, if there are spring loaded doors on the sides of your cage (it looks like a Prevue Hendryx F040 which has them) then you need to secure them shut for safety if you have not already done so. ;)

Clips for Spring Load Side Doors

I'm closing this thread now as you have the answer to your "gender" questions".
