Default Boy or girl? Age?

We just adopted this little budgie today. Pet store told us he/she was a bit older but we are not sure how old. Also could anyone tell us if boy or girl?
Thanks

Looks like a young male (purple/darker blue cere). Going through his baby molt. Prob.around 6 months at the most. Leave him rest for a week or so before doing a lot of direct handling. Read everything you can about taming and care in the stickies on this site.

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:

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.

I would say that 6 months is probably a good estimate of his age.
