post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

big_smile Hello, I really am curious as to what sexes my parakeets are.  Thanks for looking smile

First here is my youn green and yellow I got from a pet store.  If it helps to know this, these pictures are several months old and this parakeets cere is a lot more blue now. It's about four months old in these pictures (give or take a couple weeks):

This is a much older bird at about 9 years old, my Grandmother gave it to me and I still have no clue what sex it is:

You sex parakeets by the little patch above the beak. That's called a cere and males and females have different color ones.

The yellow/green is a male... the white/blue a female. (i think!)

That is funny, Wendy!! big_smile They do look a lot alike.  And I would love a clumber, they are so cute!

I took  more updated pictures of my birds today.  My green/yellow is about six months old and the white/blue is about 9-ish years old.  I would still like more conformation of sex:

Wasabi is the Green and Chi-chi is the white one....

I think the green looks like a male, the blue and white like a female.  Leave it to me to have a different opinion.  lol
