I Am Thoroughly Confused

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I have a baby budgie, Nikolai, who is around 8 weeks old. I have tried identifying their gender through the cere but am getting mixed outcomes. I would like an external opinion.


Thank you ?

I'm no expert (Google helps a lot) but it looks like a young male to me. Females tend to have really really light blue ceres when they are young that turn into a brownish white whilst males are a blueish purple. It is hard to tell when they are this young so you should probably wait a bit before making any assumptions. Hope this helps!



Is a 1.5 month-old budgie male or female if the cere is pink-blue but there  are whitish circles around the nostrils? - Quora
