How can I know wether it’s male albino budgie or female


How can I know my albino budgie gender.Her cere is white lightly bluish


Answer:

Hi Saswati,

It is usually very difficult to sex an albino parakeet without a DNA test. Generally both sexes will have a pink/lavender cere. Sometimes it will turn white or brown for a female. The female albinos are more common due to the genetics involved. Male parakeets are generally friendlier and more vocal than the females, so you can guess based on behavior. Otherwise you can ask your Vet or do a google search for a DNA test to determine sex.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
