Re: What sex are parakeets

Hi, Brenlee. Thank you for your question. A parakeet that has a blue or purple color cere would be a male bird, while a parakeet that boasts a pink or brown cere is a female. If you aren't sure It would be best to speak to your local veterinarian. Good luck!

Blue cere is male. Pink or lighter female. Exception I have a male with flesh colored cere and that's because he is a PIED.
