Hi there and to the forums!

It's great to have you on the forums

Unfortunately, I'm unable to see the photo you posted of Lemon! If he's a young male, he will have a pink to purple cere, and if "he" is actually a "she", the cere will be whitish and chalky with hints of light blue!

Adult males have dark blue ceres and females have crusty brown ceres when in breeding condition

This may help while you're looking into reposting your photo

Be sure to read through the forums, including the Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subforum for easy reference) to stay up to date on the very best of budgie care, and if you have any questions, be sure to ask as we'd love to help

I look forward to seeing you and Lemon around the forums!

Cheers!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Lemon is indeed a very handsome little male!

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

50+ Common Budgie Dangers To Watch Out For

A heartfelt plea to forum members new and old

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Pictures from PhotoBucket

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

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Welcome to the forums!

Your little Lemon is so precious! By looking at him, I'd say he is fresh from turning 3 months old.
Best of luck with your new friend!
