Parakeet Male or Female Picture?

How can you tell if a parakeet is a male or female?

Even with adult parakeets, it can be difficult to determine their sex these days because of the many color mutations. In general, a male will have a solid lavender to solid blue cere – this is the skin around their nostrils. A female will have a white to brown cere, depending on hormones and age.

At what age can you tell a parakeets gender?

The simplest and most non-invasive way of determining the sex of a parakeet is to wait until the bird reaches maturity( reaches adulthood – more than 12 months old ) and develops its mature-age cere colouring. The color of the cere differs between male and female budgie genders and is quite distinctive.
