Once a budgie is a few weeks old, you will be able to tell the sex of the bird by looking at its cere the nose and nostril area. Hens sometimes have a light blue cere, when their breeding hormone levels are low. It will also be this colour, or white with just a hint of blue, if the bird is ill. In young hens, the cere is a light blue with white around the nostrils. Cock birds, although nearly always sporting a blue cere, may have a brown or brownish-pink one if his breeding hormones dip, or if he is ill. An ill male may develop a yellow-greenish tinge around the nostrils too.
