    Your budgie looks very young (as evidenced by the bars on the head coming so far forward). I'd say you'd need a bit more time to know gender for sure.

    ok, but the white beige rings are evident, she is young and the little blue at the bottom and side, but those rings are surely there.

    It's a male because since he is so young the blue is only starting to come out
