    It looks to me like 4, 6, and possibly 7 are boys. The rest look more "girlish".

    #4 and #6 are boys. #7 could be and could not be. . . But is ADORABLE.

    Thanks for your help everyone they are my thoughts too! 4 and 6 did get into a major fight a few weeks back with one another and they must have grappled for around half an hour holding on to each others beaks and neck feathers I let them get on with it as they need to establish the pecking order, now 4 keeps out of 6's way [​IMG] 7 does try to get in on the act too so that also leads me to think he is male, strange bird, runs into the house as soon as the door is open to eat the cats food [​IMG]
