How do you determine the sex of a baby Parakeet?


Answer by  Janette (46)

It is impossible to do so with baby parakeets. However, once they reach maturity, normally six months old to a year, it is simple. A male's cere will be blue.

You need to look at the the fleshy skin over the beak also called the cree. Males will be a translucent pink and females a opaque white.

This is very difficult to do. You can attempt to spread the down feathers and examine the animal but the gender differention in baby Parakeets is minor. I suggest waiting until the animal is older.

1)observe the behavior of parakeet. Females are aggressive and they try to nest. Males will sing and whistle. Males are more active than females. 2)By checking the DNA sex can be determined.

In short, you can't tell YET. When he matures, after a year or so, he/she "budgies" will turn a different color and you can tell.

Female parakeets are usually more aggressive and territorial in behavior, they tend to make squawking sounds. Males are more outgoing and sing more.
