    Can anyone help me with my budgies gender? :)

    My budgie is one year old and I have been told that he is male by some people, and female by others so Iím really not sure anymore. Can anyone help me?

    Hi, and welcome! Your budgie is soooo beautiful! The white mutations are difficult to sex. However, since it is a year old, and I do not see any white rings around the nostrils, I would say male. Even though the cere, which is the spot above the beak is not dark blue, or blue, as male budgies generally display, this white mutation tends to have lighter color ceres.

    Do a Google search for....mutations of budgies. One website I have accessed is...Budgie Place or The Budgie Place. They have a link called mutations you can click on the top of the page, and see if you can locate your budgie mutation.

    I have a yellow mutation budgie that also has the lighter color cere, rather than blue or dark blue and it is a male, six years old.

    Hello,

    Yes, I agree with Ellen. It's male. I had simillar budgie, except the blue spots were darker, like ink and his cere was same as your budgie.
    Even if the cere is lighter for this type of mutation, its still quite easy to tell that colour is solid compared to female.

    Thanks everyone! I almost had a heart attack thinking that if he was a girl it would breed with my other budgie (a male) thanks for the peace of mind
