    Well, I'm by no means an expert since I had the wrong gender for my baby budgies, but from what I've learned the past day or so, it sounds like a male. However, see what other people say, and if possible, a better picture would be best.

    Male ceres range from pink to light blue, and dark blue... depending on color mutation.

    True, and males ceres are pinkish when young... Females sometimes have a light blue/white cere when young, as I recently found out, and realized I have 2 baby girls, not boys!

    Nope. Young females can have a baby/powder blue cere with white nostril rings, like my Casey. (Blue bug in my sig.) She recently went into breeding condition and is now almost completely chocolate brown. My other bug (Finny) has had a dark purple cere with white rings around her nares since she was a baby.
