budgie gender trouble?!?

i got my albino baby at a pet store a month ago! I've never had birds before so i didn't know anything about gender and stuff and they didn't tell me at the pet store. i researched and came to the conclusion that pico was a boy due to the hints of blue at his/her cere. but I got girls from a breeder and their ceres look very similar so now im confused. help?

Re: budgie gender trouble?!?

How old is each bird? The cere will change color as they age usually ...

They're about 4 months old, im assuming bc on azir the black lines are still on his head but faded. might be faded since he is a dilute. pico is an albino so can't really tell but I'm sure they're about the same age.

Re: budgie gender trouble?!?

it can take about a year for their cere to develop properly so could be boy or girl

Being an albino, the cere won't change color.
