Hello friends.
We recently (2 weeks ago) brought two new budgies home. They are both around 5-6 months old. One is definitely a male with a strong blue cere. The other however, named Pickles, is causing us to scratch our heads a little. We originally thought he was male as the cere is pale purple in colour. Pickles is very dominant in the cage and isn’t as vocal as Radish which confuses us further as this is how our old female budgie behaved. Any advice based on the attached pictures would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all

Both boys. Color intensity changes with breeding hormones.
I don't claim to be an expert tho

Definitely a male, with budgie same-sex pairs, one will usually play the role of the female, and one of the male. I know Stormy plays the role of the male, while Picasso plays the role of the female.
