Can someone please help identify the gender of this cutie? It landed on my balcony last week.

I did some research this appears to be a lutino? I am trying to find it a companion of its opposite gender.

Thanks!

How adorable!

Please try to find the owners if you haven’t already. Someone might be missing their little friend. Pet stores, shelters, rescues, vets of all species, online classifieds without pics are a good start.

I’m not great with yellow (why I have a male named Marigold), but I think I see the start of tan & flaking. So my guess is a young girl. Others will know for sure.

Welcome! :)

Thank you! I have tried to find the owner but no success. Will try my best to keep it healthy and happy.

@Ripshod what cues you to female? The possible flaking?
I like learning and testing myself on this. Would NOT have guessed female!

Dark eyed clear, or does that look like some white iris starting?

Her cere is turning brown.

Too young to tell yet. could be DEC, could be df spangled. Time will tell

The flaking at the edges is nothing to do with gender. More likely the air is a bit dry ;)

Thanks guys. Still a bit confused but I am thinking of getting a male budgie now. It is said two females (in case this one is) will fight in the same cage?
