Hello friends 馃槉
We recently (2 weeks ago) brought two new budgies home. They are both around 5-6 months old. One is definitely a male with a strong blue cere. The other however, named Pickles, is causing us to scratch our heads a little. We originally thought he was male as the cere is pale purple in colour. Pickles is very dominant in the cage and isn鈥檛 as vocal as Radish which confuses us further as this is how our old female budgie behaved. Any advice based on the picture below would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all 馃槉

Congratulations on your new budgies! Pickles is also male :) I can see how it might be confusing because of the slightly lighter than normal coloring, but the edges of the cere are purple still so he is male for sure.

He's absolutely stunning! What a handsome boy :D
