How can I Identify My Albino Budgerigar Gender/Sex

Albino Budgies Male and Female Differ

As a point of interest, albinism shows up differently in the two genders. A bird can only carry a single or double copy of the gene.

Budgies without the Ino gene display normal gender differences. Birds can display a variety of shades in the spectrum of white, pink, beige and brown. Their legs are usually pink or something close to it. The problem with albinos is that both genders show feminine colors. Male albinos cannot develop the distinctive blue of the masculine budgie. Should you need to identify your albino’s gender and none are putting down a clutch, you’d need expert help such as a vet or a genetic test.
