Keeping Budgies; Sexing Your Budgerigar

Click here for full article: "Keeping Budgies: Sexing Your Budgerigar

The simplest way to tell if your budgie is male or female is to look at the cere (the bit above it's beak) and see what colour it is.

Most of the time, a young female will have a pale blue cere with white rings around the nostrils whereas a young males will be a purple-pinkish colour.

Adults are a little different. An adult male budgerigar will have a blue cere and the female will have an almost white cere with a hint of blue."
