Default Tan hue male budgie

My male budgie Spirit is 1 year old. He has had a translucent blue purple pink cere since I got him a year ago. I was 100 percent certain that he was a male. He is a sky blue recessive pied. Recently his cere has changed colors ever so slightly. It is still the same translucent purple but over top that color there is a very very slight tan overlaying it. The biggest change in his life is that he has a new cage mate. His cage mate is lutino. I thought that he was a boy but his cere is way more white than Spirits. So I've come to guess 'he' might be a female.

I guess my question is this:

At one year old a budgie that is female would have already gone into breeding condition, correct? Would have gotten that brown crusty cere, even if she is a recessive pied?

I just spent 20 minutes trying to get a good picture or video of their ceres but it's a no go. Next warm day I'll take them outside and try for a better picture.

Thanks for any input and help!

Not all female budgies cere's turn by one year of age so the pictures will be very helpful.

Please make sure when you take your budgies outside you have them safely secured in their cage at all times.

Also, it's best they not be in direct sunlight for the pictures. Flash and direct sunlight both wash out the color of the cere in pictures.

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!
