You'll be able to tell by the time he's four to six months old, but not before unless you want to have him DNA sexed, which actually isn't too expensive, about $25. If he's a boy, he'll molt out the pearl pattern with his first molt. If he's a girl, he'll keep them :)

Are you in the US? If so it really is only $25. I had my sun conure DNA tested with avian biotech to determine he's a male. Look them up, I promise it's not $370 :)
