Maya is adorable, and she does appear to be a creamino! Are you sure she鈥檚 a girl? The cere looks very pink in that photo! More pics would be great to confirm 馃憤馃徎

Purely conjecture on my part and I don鈥檛 know if you know what I mean,but I just get a feeling fro behaviour,attitude,calling etc and the way she is acting around Sonny,her playmate,(7weeks).May is only 5 weeks herself so Cere is unreliable at this stage.Time will tell if I,m right or wrong,probably got it wrong,lol.

Ahhh, from the additional pictures you've posted, it is obvious you have a very handsome little male!

A cere that is as dark a pink/purple as his leaves no question with regard to gender.
Behavior of budgies is not a reliable indicator of gender. Each and every budgie is unique.
Males will bond just as closely with another male as they will to a female and vice versa.

Thank you for posting the additional pictures. Lovely budgies!!

Best wishes

Oh!,Just for confirmation, you think I have two boys here?! I was pretty sure Sonny was a boy,but really wasn鈥檛 sure about Maya(possibly Ronny馃槵).I,ve never been able to tell at such an early stage,but can you explain how you?

Yes, both are boys. When young, males have pinky coloured ceres whereas hens usually have white rings around their nares and their Ceres are a powdery blue colour. While most males ceres turn blue as they mature, a pied budgie, like you have, will always keep his pink cere.

QThank you for the reply,I,m glad I found this forum as I,e always been extremely sceptical of sexing babies at such an early age
Both are males without a doubt as I indicated earlier.

The fact that you are so sure is refreshing,considering the amount of presumed knowledge I,ve come across,I have checked on the other babies and it would certainly seem to ring true.i really wasn鈥檛 aware you could sex them at such an early stage. great!

He鈥檚 stunning! He鈥檚 a Texas clearbody; I鈥檇 say grey yellowface II Texas clear body. What a gorgeous guy. Since Ino (lutino/creamino/albino) is a sex linked mutation, he is also split to ino, given that he had a son (your budgie) who was also visually ino.
