We have two parakeets. The first, Buddy, is definitely a boy. He's green, with blue tailfeathers, and a dark, dark blue cere. Angel, our "girl", is a blue parakeet, much, much smaller than Buddy. "Her" cere is light, light purple. I always thought that females only had shades of brown and tan ceres. Should we change "her" name to Angelo???? I'm wondering because of the color tint in the cere. Thanks!

male or female Parakeets

A male nostrial will be deep blue and females will be different colors of tan as adults.
A younger Parakeet will have dark strips on the crown of its head until mature.

i once raise 4 little parrots.and until them flied away,i still didn't know who are girl and who are boy
i mean:i couldn't distinguish the gender of birds,but i often heard on TV that,the male birds usually have more colorful feather than the female.and the male birds are generally bigger than females,but this is not definitely right sometimes..
