    Thanks for your insight! One more question- is he likely to grow any bigger in size? He is TINY! Compared to budgies I've had previously, he's like like a miniature budgie.

    He won't grow much bigger than he is, if at all. If your other budgies were noticeably larger could they have been English Budgies (show budgies bred to be larger)?

    1.0 = male
    0.1 = female

    Breeder terms.... as far as I've seen. i.e. they have 7 birds, in a ratio of 2.5 or perhaps 4.3 in terms of gender.


    I had one hen that I believe was Dutch Pied. Dutch Pieds look recessive but they are actually dominant mutations. Recessive pieds will have completely black eyes and a males cere will always remain pink/tan in coloration. Dutch Pieds get the white eyering like Dominant Pieds and males will have the blue/purple cere. She was sky blue with patches of violet. That's the beauty of pieds - they can vary so much!

    @Ripshod do you think this 11 week old is a male or female?

    I'm on the lookout for a friend for Flynn and came across this little one.

    I'd hate to say from those pics. I'd really like to see clearer pics of the cere.

    @Ripshod Thank you for the help! I assumed he was a boy (Especially beacause he loves to stand on my head and preen my hair) but I really wasn't sure so thanks for the wonderfull help! :D

    At 4-5 months old, I'd actually say male.... female should have a clearly white cere by now. Might need to wait a bit longer! ;)
