I think they're males too, but the photos are too far away. Need a better pic of the face (believe it or not). If they are males, they are young males.

Actually, this is going to be harder for you since both birds are of a color variety (one albino and the other lutino) that could prevent the cere from changing color. Your best bet if you don't want to pay for having your birds sexed is to watch the behavior. Males will typically chirp, bob their heads, and hop from perch to perch; females typically don't display these behaviors.

In this case the band numbers were probably only relevant to the breeder in managing their flock; I don't recognize the abbreviations as any major bird club.
