New budgie baby! Not sure about gender

405 Views 18 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  StarlingWings

I went toy shopping for my adopted budgie and fell in love with a baby budgie I found at the pet store. Oops! :ROFLMAO:

At first I thought it was a female because of all the white around the nostrils, but I‘m not sure.

Would love help identifying this baby’s gender. Thank you!! 🙏

The cere does look quite bluish but to me i believe she will turn out to be female. The flatness around the nostrils with the matte whitish blue appearance is what's giving me this impression. Could you post updated photos in one or two weeks?

I agree. Male baby budgies will have a pinkish- purple cere which will turn deep blue at maturity. It still can be difficult to be sure however. I am only referring to non-mutations however which your budgie is. I mean it's not only one color or part English budgie etc. It's a standard budgie without the green and yellow.
