lucy or Lutin





I bought my budgie only days ago and I'm thinking it's female but I'm not too sure as it is a Lutino budgie. It's cere is mainly pink/blue with white around its nostrils and is almost flat, not round like the male I have. It is a youngster around 8-9 weeks. It is adorable as it only has 1 foot completely working......very friendly. I really wish I could find out what sex he/she really is as it's bugging me lol. My other budgie who is male absolutely idolizes he/she , feeds it, sings to it, preens it etc etc.......I think that says it all really. I love him/her to bits and i dont mind what sex he/she is but it would just be nice to know if I should call him/her Lucy or Lutin xx

Could change at that young age.
by: Nat

Careful with the name choice. We have had our bird for 6months (T.Rex) and now his cere is crusty beige. We thought HE was a boy and now we think he is a girl.

I think it's a boy!
by: Jeremy

Hmmm - any blue on the cere tends to suggest a male bird although real lutino males have a flesh coloured cere and females have a brown one. At least, that's what is says in my budgie book! I've got a lutino and I'm pretty sure it's male.

lucy or lutin?
by: Anonymous

white around the nostrils is usually a clear sign of a hen. if it is a male the cere will stay flesh coloured, if a hen it will go brown.

Male I think
by: Claire

Hmmm, seems to be male to me, but I can't
be sure. I have a yellow budgie too just like
yours but it has a green patch on its rump and
I'm not sure if it is a male or a female.
