    My daughter just gave these to me today and I want to know their sex before I name them. Don't know how old, they were just bought from a pet store. I appreciate any help!

    Blue is definitely a female, and I'm thinking the other may be also. [​IMG] I can't exactly tell with the lighting, though, so is there any way you could get an individual picture of Yellow's cere?

    They are beautiful, love the spangle on the light green one!

    It would be good if you could get closer pictures of both their ceres. The yellow one looks female to me and the recessive pied blue one looks male.

    My daughter just told me that the store she bought them from said blue was girl and yellow/green was boy. It hasn't been a full 25 hours since I got them, but there has not been on chirp or anything! They are exploring their cage now and not huddled in a corner anymore though.

    You can't really tell their gender 100% unless you have then tested by a veterinarian but when they hit the age of about 7 months they should be mature their ceres will change color male will probably be blueish and female will be more of a tan/brown color.
