Default Could Leo possibly be a girl instead??

I've read over a lot of budgie stuff! Thanks for all the great links on this board.

So this may be silly but when I read about the sexing of Leo's mutation (I think I figured it out!) he looks more like a girl to me- is that possible?

when I read about sexing him, at 6 months, he doesn't look like the male pieds do. He looks more like the females. His cere isn't pink but light blue white-ish with only hint of pink.

I attached two photos from of the photos in the article I read and a few pics of him in natural light. Is it possible Leo should be Leola (is that a name? lol)

Thanks for reading.

(Edit: just realized I made a typo in the heading. His name is Leo, not Leon)

I'm not sure about the gender... An expert will be along soon
I can assure you Leola is a name though. It means lion

He looks like a boy to me because of the purpley colour of his cere but a photo taken in natural lighting would make it easier to tell.

I fixed your title . I was confused for a second. I knew it was Leo not Leon . He looks like a boy.

Leo is still a male -- he hasn't changed into a female.

I've merged your two threads regarding his gender.
