The pet store said s/he was about 3-5 months old, is opalaine a mutation?
Yes, Opaline is a mutation.
I did some research on opaline budgies, so opalines can only be girls?
No, My LJ was a boy and Opaline. For a Male budgie to be visually Opaline their Father had to be Opaline or split for Opaline and have an Opaline Mother. Visual Opaline budgies are just more likely to be female, unless they were bred by a breeder specifically working with Opalines.

Congratulations. I am absolutely no help with budgie genders. But I can tell you what I do know. Benson is gorgeous.
