I’m not a expert on budgies, but to me she seems like a female because of her cere. Do you know her age?

I read somewhere that when budgies are younger that male and females look the same. I hope that someone more knowledgeable will help you out. :)

Beautiful birdo! I am most likely not the most knowlageable to take a shot, so I'm just going to attach a graph I found.
It does look a bit rosie, which would lead me to believe It'd be a male, bit it might just be the lighting.
The ceres do look quite similar in babies though..
Anyway he/she is a very preety bird! :)

Thus budgie is recessive pied, which is not covered by that chart. A mature male recessive pied would have a rich pink/purple cere.

this is a male to but this dont look like a recessive pied looks like a double factor dominant pied
Same guy, a bit younger. Unfortunately I have no other photos of the mature fella. Sometimes we're thrown the occasional curve ball.

Oh my! This little budgie looks SO much like my little Frost. Even the bits of blue near the tail. I’m going to post something in a few minutes. Don’t want to hijack someone else’s post. Welcome, sweet little budgie!

With how flat the cere appears, I'd want to say female... but color wise, says male.

Wait a few more months and if it remains pink, definitely a male! :D
