My topic title basically states the question. I'm honestly confused at what gender they are, and they need some names.

Males have one curled feather in their tail when they get older. If you are trying to sex the little ones, listen to them. The females will be Mouthy; The higher pitched cheep. Males will only mutter lower pitched cheeps.

Sorry, we just confirmed it's 5 months, not 3.

And I'm not too sure. We got them from a lady that was selling them together, and we bought both of them. They have grown up together, also.

Then I'd say for sure drakes. they are handsome boys, are you going to add some girls into the mix?
