    Thank you! I was hoping that's what they were. And does the prominently dark head mean that they're both drakes?

    Not necessarily. Females can have darker heads but only the males will end up with green heads around 3 1/2-4 months.

    You can voice sex them around 10 weeks. Males are more quiet and raspy sounding and females are loud and shrill

    Okay thank you! I was hoping they weren't both definite drakes! [​IMG]
