    If they are three years old and males, they should be showing a significant train by now. Do both have trains starting? It's hard to see from the pictures. I'd say it looks like it could be a pied hen as I don't see a any color developing. If you could post some additional pics that might help too.

    one of our three year old males, taken about a month ago, you can see the train developing. Do both or either have this yet?

    It's really hard to tell from the photos. Would it be possible for you to get more pics to share. SOme around the back end, and whole body shots etc would be really helpful.

    Yep that pied is a girl. The other is a boy, so you do have a male-female pair.

    yep, train or no train, if it's 2-3 years old, it should have a blue breast by now, not a grey one, so definately a pair there
