Re: Color changing nose??

One of my aviary budgies had the strangest colouration of the cere for a time... half was brown, the other half blue! Her cere eventually turned completely brown, however neither I nor the vet knew why she had such a strange colouration.

I am pretty sure your budgie is a girl - mostly because girl budgies can have a range of cere colours between light blue/white and brown. Since the cere is now certainly brown, I would assume she is female.

Donít worry toooo much about eggs, if she has nowhere to lay ( I.e no nesting box) then it is unlikely.

Re: Color changing nose??

Here's a picture I have that shows the blue of a male vs the blue of a female. (this is one picture, cropped/edited - click to enlarge!)

That same female with different colored ceres.
