Hello every one I was hoping someone could identify my baby budgie's gender I don't know anything about sex linked things but the mutations of the parents might help with gender of the chick: the Mum is a YF2 grey spangle dominant pied and the Dad is a YF2 cobalt opaline.

 

And here is the chick:

 

sorry if photo sizes are 2 big I edited them to forum size rules but the keep changing :angry: .

The chick is opaline so if the mother is not an opaline the chick must be female.

The photos below are the clearest I can get in the 1st Picture the cere shows blue on it but that's just the reflection of the icecream tub the 2nd picture ( distance ) is the actual colour of the cere a light pink with whitish rings around nostrils.

I am with Neville...Baby looks opaline to me..So If dad was opaline and mum was normal then baby must be a girl...( as long as it is opaline ).

 

Is the baby also cinnamon...? If so then dad would be split cinnamon which would again make baby a girl...

Today I just noticed the chick has a clear patch on the back of it's head. Isn't the patch on recessive pieds? not dominant pieds?

Are all the photos of the same chick? Based on these two photos, it appears to be a dominant pied.

Yes the photo's are of the same chick. I thought only rec. pieds have a clear patch on the back of their head but I guess I was wrong.

I understand why you used the word "gender" instead of "sex" in the title.
