Albino Budgie Gender?

Hi, I have an albino budgie I think is about 8 months old. We think it's a girl because of her cere color but being albino it's somewhat hard to tell. "She" is very timid (from our experience females can be very timid) but also talks a LOT, like a male budgie, and that's what confuses us. Any thoughts?

She's looking female. What colour are her eyes? Are they bright red in normal lighting or are they dark? I ask because there seems to be some colouration in her feathering, meaning she's more likely to be dark eyed clear rather than true albino.

Lovely budgie! Is the minty iced green hue to her breast feathers real or the camera?!

They're dark red. You can definitely tell they're red in normal lighting. She's all white- the flash from the camera makes it look like her feathers are a little green.

I agree that cere appears female. She is beautiful. Don't be fooled into thinking that only the males talk. Little ladies can be quite chatty too...lol. Also if that is a flashed photo it could change her cere colour. Is it a bluish/soft lavender or a deeper pink? Deeper pink is male.

She's a dark eyed clear. The flash is showing her pied markings.
True albinos have bright red eyes.

Yeah, it's bluish/soft lavender. Thanks for your help!
