Am I Correct In Guessing Hen?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

After not having birds for many years after leaving the US and moving to Australia, I've gotten myself a little budgie the other week and am very much enjoying having a busy little clown of a bird around again. The breeder felt mine was probably male but from behaviour "he" strikes me more as a girl. We're trying to figure out a name but of course in part that will depend upon if she is a she or a he! ^_^ The colour from what I have gathered looking online is a yellowface type two grey recessive pied if that helps? (And if I'm wrong, would someone mind telling me the proper colour if possible?)

 

Thanks in advance for all your help!

i think it looks male, if you could get more pics looking straight on to the cere it would make it easier.

 

thanks

Sure thing, Budgie Lover... the little poser doesn't mind a few more shots I'm sure. ;) Do these shots work a bit better for you or would a close up be better?

those shots are perfect, nice budgie you have. i'm pretty sure it's a male and he will keep the pink cere through his life because he is a pied.

 

Please correct me if i'm wrong

 

Thanks

Cute little budgie. I think it's a male. He'll keep the pink cere because he is a recessive pied.

Thanks everyone! That makes naming him lots easier! Being a bit of a fan of the old Westerns, he'll be Roy Rogers then. :) I've had and bred English budgies some years ago but always kept cobalt and green with nothing more fancy than a cinnamon, so I've never had to deal with a pied!
