Default Is she definitely a hen

Hi here is another picture of sapphire just to make sure she is a girl, she's been in zukos cage today investigating it, he was so happy he was dancing around and singing to her, it didn't bother him one bit. I'm hoping by next weekend they can be housed together.

Yes, she is definitely female -- there is no question as to her gender.

Just a note about your other thread re Sapphire, the cere in the pictures looks pink and smooth to me, which would indicate a male for that variety of budgie. If in reality the cere is actually brown and not smooth or shiny, then it is a hen after all.

Really...It does have a pinkish tint around the edges. I don't mind either way, but it would be nice to know for definite. Thank you

Since I'm seeing a whitish tan cere on my computer and tonic has written that she is seeing pink -- would you please post a full-frontal close-up picture of the cere taken in natural light so another assessment can be made please?

Unfortunately, sometimes computers don't each show colors the same way and it is a matter of interpretation.
Another picture will be very helpful.

Thanks!

It's strange because it is pinkish around the edges but very light around the Nares. I will try taking a better picture tomorrow. Looking closely I don't see any tan colouring more beige around the nares. It is not all one solid colour.

Please ake a look at these threads regarding gender.
They will help you have a better idea of what to look for.

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

The cere looks pale pink to me, too, but if it's beige, she's a hen.

The photos are overexposed. Would you please post photos taken in natural light?

The bird's mutation is recessive pied. Recessive pied males have pink or purply-pink ceres instead of bright blue ceres (like your grey male). Hens have the usual white/pale blue, tan or crusty brown ceres.
