Albino... Male Or Female?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I recently got a baby albino budgie from a breeder. She said she would only bring the males. The budgie I got off her is about 11 weeks old now and its cere is pinkish purple. Have i been sold a female or is the sexing different with albinos?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Sexing is the same with albinos when they are young. If the cere stays pinky-purple, you have a male. If you have a hen, the cere will turn brown as normal. If you can post a good clear picture of the cere, we can help you determine the sex. :D

a picture if you have 1 would let without a flash of the cere because a flash washs it out and makes them look more female.

Judging by the amount of pink you've definitely got a boy. :P

I would say girl. It is a little too purple to be a boy. Although, it's a fine line.

 

Yeah. It's a girl. It has white around the nostrils.

I would lean to a boy as well, simply becuase of the evenness of the pink colour. Although its hard to tell with a blurry picture.

 

Sailor I don't see any white.

It is lighter around the top of the nostrils.

Thanks for your help! I thought if the cere was blue then it was a boy and if it was purple or brown it was a girl! Thanks again.

Albino's like recessive pieds and DEC the male cere does not change it will remain a nice bright pink they don't follow the rule of the blue cere on males. The hen's the ceres are normal and will go to brown in these mutations.
