Is My Budgie A Boy Or A Girl?

Updated on June 19, 2014

So you bought yourself a budgie, and now the question has been nagging at you... Is it a boy or a girl? It's not too difficult to tell with budgies, but it can be confusing for beginning bird owners. A guide on how you can tell the gender of your budgie, with helpful pictures.

Boy Or Girl?

Most bird species are not sexually dimorph. This means that you can't tell what gender it is, simply by looking at it. Luckily, we're talking budgies here! Although it can be difficult for beginners and non-bird owners to tell the gender of a budgie, with a few simple tips, you'll be able to determine if your bird is a Tweeter or a Tweetine (Dear Lord, please don't actually use those names...!).

Behavior

Male budgies tend to be the calmer, more social of the species. The hens, while they can be very sweet, tend to be more aggressive towards strangers, will be more inclined to defend their territory, and will nibble on things more. This is due to their instinct to create and defend their nest. The males also talk a lot more. Very few hens actually chatter like the males do.

As mentioned, the males are also more social. They are more likely to create a strong bond with another male in the group, whereas females very seldom have a best female friend.

Of course, as far as behavior goes, that is easily modified and therefore not always very reliable. The above is something you'll more easily notice if you have several budgies. It's also possible that you have one female budgie that acts like a male. This is because it's spent a lot of its life around the males of her species and learned how to behave from them.

Looks

This is the one that's most often used to distinguish a gender. Superficially speaking, there is absolutely no difference between cocks and hens. But take a closer look at the colored swollen patch on their beak (this is called a cere). The color of the cere is the key to revealing the mystery of a budgie's gender.

A male budgie will almost always (except when it's an albino) have a dark blue cere. If it's a very young bird, the cere will be purple. Observe the cere of the bird on the left in the picture above. It's approximately 6 weeks old, and has a purple cere. Therefore, it is male.

The bird on the left has a dark blue cere and is male. The one on the right has a very light blue cere with white nostriles and is female.

After a couple of months, the budgie's cere will change color, indicating that it's maturing (but not fertile yet!). So purple turns to dark blue when it's a male. But what about a female?

Females are the cause of the most confusion. People with male budgies seldom wind up really being unsure as to the gender. But females sometimes have blue in their ceres too, and that's mostly where the confusion sets in.

Females usually begin with a very light blue cere, sometimes it's almost white. If your bird is very young, you should be able to see very clear white rings around the nostrils. Not all hens have this though, so don't let that make or break your decision. As she ages, her cere will turn to a darker light blue. Sometimes she'll still have the white nostrils. Sometimes, her cere will turn a shade of pink. If she's feeling like breeding, it'll be brown and crusty. It could be beige. But it will never be dark blue!

So here's how to decide. Does your budgie have a dark blue cere like the bird on the left in the upper picture? Or does it have a purple cere like the one on the left in the top picture? Then it's a male.If it doesn't, you can be almost certain it's a female!

Many websites and bird owners juggle with lots of cere colors, saying that different feather colors will often result in different cere colors. But a male will have a darkblue or purple cere in 90% of the cases, and a female will not. Don't let yourself be confused.

The most telling of all...

If your budgie lays eggs, you can be pretty sure it's a female. Well, that, or you call National Geographic Channel and tell them to come over.

This is Nala. After much doubt, the rule still applied: not dark blue = not male.

A small anekdote

As a budgie owner, I began out wondering very strongly as to the gender of one of the birds I had acquired. I read all I could about cere colors, budgie behavior and links to gender, and so on and so on. I put pictures online of the budgie I wasn't sure on, got the advice of experts and eventually consulted a bird vet. The guy who sold the bird to me said it was a male and had put the budgie in a cage with only males. Most experts said it was a female. Some experts said it was a male. Even the vet eventually said it was a male.

But I was so sure it was a female. The behavior was that of a male. The cere was light blue, but I couldn't find the white rings on it. The websites I checked said, blue for males, females have white rings and sometimes light blue ceres.

I decided to trust my gut on this. The white nostrils weren't there, the behavior was male, but the cere was not dark blue. And so I decided, well, I feel it's a girl despite the evidence, I'm just going to consider her a female.

Well, to summarize how it turned out... Until male budgies start laying eggs, I'll know the vet was wrong, I was right.

The morale of this tale: If you're in doubt, it's most likely a female. Follow your guts.

So To Summarize...

Color of Cere
Gender
Dark blue
Male
Any other color
Female
Still in doubt...
Probably female

Is your budgie a boy or a girl?

      Is her cere turning blue or the feathers? The cere is subject to hormones and a change in color could indicate entering or leaving the breeding time. If it's turning to a light blue, it could be she's matured enough to lay eggs but isn't in the breeding mood. The feathers should've changed before now but some budgies do slightly change color as they mature. I can't be more specific without seeing a picture.

      I have two budgies. 1 female and the other one i am not sure. it chews on everthing and fights with the other female, but occasionally they feed each other can some one help me

    • Elysianphoenix profile image

      Elysianphoenix 4 years ago from Belgium

      The behavior you describe indicates both your budgies are female. The chewing is very typical of females. Usually females don't really become the best of friends, but if they only have each other to keep company, they CAN develop a close friendship. Is its cere darkblue? If not, it's probably a female. If you can post a clear picture, I can be more precise.

      Are you sure because i have had both budgies for a year and nothing has happened. I even put a breeding box to see if they would breed and nothing happened and they are both more than a year old i am convinced it is a female since no breeding has taken place and there a white rings around the nostrol that aren't very clear in the picture

      I love your info about budgies, I've had my budgie for just over a year, and finally realized that she is female, I thought any blue in the cere meant boy, so I've been calling her a boy, we've been thinking about getting her a friend, but if we get a boy, will they mate no matter what? Or like humans, do they have to be attracted and "date" their potential mate? Also, any tricks for getting a budgie in a new, bigger cage? Thanks for any advice :)

      When budgies age, they go through puberty, just as we would. For them, it usually lasts until they're about 1,5 - 2 years old. During puberty, the color of their feathers can change slightly. It's perfectly normal, just the result of hormones. :)

      It sounds like both are male, though I can't tell for certain without a picture. What you describe, pink with a little blue forming, does sound like a male though. Budgies mature at different rates, just like humans do. Some are a bit faster than others. :)

      Elysianphoenix 4 years ago from Belgium

      I can't really tell without more information. Are they both male or female? How old are they? In what conditions are they kept? Are they healthy? Are they happy? Etc...

      If your budgie is very very young, it can have a blackish streak on its beak. This will go away when it matures. It's really the cere you need to look at. The beak will tell you nothing. It sounds like a female. :)

      Hmmm, that's a tough one. Purple is generally a sign of a young male. Light blue is a sign of a female. Beige is also a sign of a female that is not in the breeding time. Could you provide a clear picture of the cere? I might be able to tell with greater certainty then. At this point I would guess at female, but like I said, I can't be fully sure without a picture...

      I thought that too, at first. Most information out there is very confusing, that's why I decided to write this article. :) Budgies are very similar to humans in many ways. They have their preferences and some budgies they just will not get along with for whatever reason. But if you stick a man and a woman in a cage for a couple years, there's a good chance they'll end up "falling in love", because they simply have no others to choose from. So most likely they will mate, but it's never a guarantee. There are even gay budgies!

      As for a bigger cage, the theory is one, practice is another. I usually just end up transferring everything (cleaned) into the new cage, sticking them in and observing them for a couple days, which usually works perfectly, but the ideal way is the following... Put the new cage next to the old cage, to let them get used to it and to tickle their curiosity. Then when it's time to move, clean everything from the old cage, and put it in the new cage. Let them spend the day in the new cage, but let them sleep in the old cage, so they don't injure themselves in the dark of night. After a week, you can let them stay in the new cage if everything goes well.

      Do keep an eye on how they behave in the new cage though. Maybe toys are too close or not in the right place, or they don't use something at all, etc... That's the theory and the ideal way, but like I said, follow your instinct. Some birds don't need all that, some do. ;)

      PLEASE help me sex my budgies. I would like to mate them!

      I have 4 budgies. I am VERY unsure about Wolf and Mischa, but please provide feedback on all of them, as I am new and don't know what I'm doing :)

      FYI - I got Wolf and Mischa from petco about three months ago. The other two-Titi and Mischa are over 2 years old.

      http://www.flickr.com/photos/laurieschillinger/822...

      http://www.flickr.com/photos/laurieschillinger/822...

      Wolf is the grey (diluted) one.

      Mischa is the green/yellow one.

      Titi is the (mostly) white one.

      Blueberry is the blue one.

      Im pretty sure blueberry is a boy. Also, I am aware Titi is a recessive pied, and is therefore a boy.

      THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!

      Hey,

      I took a look at the pictures you provided.

      http://www.flickr.com/photos/laurieschillinger/822...

      I assume this is Wolf? This is a boy. Look at the nose. The picture you provided of this budgie shows a pink color with a blueish tone. Typical for a boy!

      http://www.flickr.com/photos/laurieschillinger/822...

      On this picture, Mischa is a little more difficult to tell because the color seems to be rather unclear but from what I can tell, it's most likely a girl. It seems to be a rather white nostril, maybe a hint of grey in there. If that's the case, then it's a girl.

      Titi is without a doubt a boy. The color is undeniably dark pink/purple.

      http://www.flickr.com/photos/laurieschillinger/822...

      Blueberry is also without a doubt a boy. The nose is colored dark blue. You'll never find that color on a girl.

      Yasar: Don't worry. Your budgie is just not in a breeding mood anymore. :) When she feels like mating, her nose turns dark brown. When she's no longer in the mood, it turns back to a pale color.

      I've been looking everywhere to try to figure out my budgies gender, and this has been the most helpful. But I'm still not 100% sure. So can you tell me for sure? From what you said they the green looks male while the blue one looks female. They like each other a lot. So I put them in a bigger cage, added nesting box, vitimins to their water, dandlion leaves, kettle bone and mineral block, along with nesting material out that they can pick at themselves to use.. and they still havn't started breeding yet. They might be too young, do they look to young to you? This pic was taken a while ago though.

      Hi, thanks for the help! I've just gotten 2 budgies & figured one of them is female (brown crusty cere) but the other is causing confusion! I'm inclined to think he's male..he's a lot calmer & more chatty than female but here's the problem... his cere is light blue with GREEN rings around the nostrils!! he doesn't seem sick in anyway & looks good & healthy (and according to the pet shop between 4-6 months old ) HELP!!!? :)

      Elysianphoenix 2 years ago from Belgium

      Shelby: You're correct. The green one is male (but not mature in that picture!) and the blue one is female. Budgies can start to mate around 11 months but shouldn't have eggs until the female is at least 18 months! The absolute last time they should breed is around 4-5 years for the female. Good luck!

      Elysianphoenix 2 years ago from Belgium

      Ciara: The brown cere is undoubtedly female. The other one... Green? o_O I suppose it could be a hormonal thing. You may want to get it checked out by the vet just to be on the safe side though he sounds healthy. The light blue sounds like female but if it's a hormonal issue, that can screw the whole theory up. Behavior sounds male... The only way to be sure with this one (unless he starts laying eggs) is to have his DNA checked by a vet who can then tell you if it's a he or she. ;)

    • Elysianphoenix profile image
      Author

      Elysianphoenix 2 years ago from Belgium

      Tazza: If it's dark purple, I strongly suspect it's male, possibly still very young?

      However, the fact that your budgie keeps flying into walls is a problem. He could seriously injure himself. I recommend trying to find the reason. Did you clip its wings? If so, that may be the reason. Another possibility is that he's still very young and still needs to learn how to fly. No matter what the reason, please try to find out why and prevent it from happening again!

      Biting is aggression. Possibly you're holding it in your hand too strongly, or it's simply not tame enough. If it's still young, give it time. Don't force it to be tame, that won't work. Try following the tips in my other articles on how to tame a budgie. :)

      Good luck!

I would really need your opinion too, please. When the parakeet came to us it had a crusty white ish cere with very light blue spots on the side, then after about a month and a half it turned light pink, light brown (tan) and the blue spots disappeared.

      They are both male. The one on the left (the blue budgie) is older and mature. The one on the right (green) is still a child and is also male. The purple will have turned to dark blue by now, same color as the other budgie!

      Purple/(dark) blue is indeed most likely male. :)

      I would think it odd for a baby budgie to already have a dark brown cere. Dark brown and crusted even means she's feeling like nesting. She could be small because she had been underfed as a baby or because she was captured in the wild (this is no longer allowed but does still happen way too often). I'm thinking you might be right - she's an adult!

      Is it dark (purple) pink? That's usually a male. Girls tend to have skyblue ceres (or brown as they mature).

      From what you describe, I would guess male. Males have a pink/purple cere as a baby, which then turns to darker blue as they age!

      My male budgie is over a year and his cere is still very pink! He is pied though. I've had my female for three years and shes only gone into breeding condition once sadly.

      Dear Ely,

      I have a beautiful budgie girl, named Neda Starkovic - originally meant to be Ned Stark but her cere turned brown and so I lost my head ;) - and now I have another budgie named Pedro (1 year old), whom I now suspect is more Sofia Vergara than Pedro... Please solve this terrible dilemma for me... Thank You in advance

      I have a male budgie named BoBo. We want to get a nother perikeet and want to get a female. Yesterday I went to pet smart and fund this beautiful albino perikeet. What I want to know is was it a girl or boy? It was a baby and had a purple cere. What I'm trying to ask is if the bird was a girl or boy, because I know that albino perikeets are different to tell the gender?

      I catch a young budgie this afternoon. She has only one leg and 3 toes on the leg. She is very scared. Any advise that will help to calm her. I love animals and going to give her a loving home.
