Judging by the cere it looks to be a boy but looks can be deceiving, How old is it?

2 months. That's my guess at the moment too.

It’s hard to tell at that age but the male’s cere turns bright blue when he matures, while the female’s cere turns brown or tan.

What a cutie-pie! Yeah, I'm thinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnking 'boy', but... I believe you'll know for sure by 4-6 months. What an exciting time.

Re: Any guesses on Baby Budgie's gender?

Welcome to the forums, thanks for joining! I am not familiar with Budgies, so others can give better guidance! Stunningly beautiful bird!!

The generally accepted quarantine duration is 30 days. There can be exceptions for specific highly trusted situations, like a bird coming from a single-bird home. Better safe than sorry!

Welcome to the forum. Kind of hard to tell in the picture but normally male budgies have a blue cere.
