Which one of these Alex's are more likely to become male in the near future ??

Since they are both only 5 months of age at the moment, i know there is no sure way to tell without a DNA Test, but still, which one in your opinion has the characteristics of a male ?? judging by the overall appearance, head shapes, beaks etc etc

Thanks

A dna test is 12 bucks a vet...like 60-ish for a simple exam and blood draw from one toenail clipped a little short.

See a vet and go to Order bird DNA test- 99.99% safe from iQBirdTesting.com

or any site, they were just the ones I used.

Both look female to me and completely beautiful...but it's almost completely a guess...apart from the beautiful bit, that's 100% fact!

Yes, I think they both look female as well. Of course, they could easily both be male, but you did ask for guesses.

DNA test is the only way to know for sure. Or wait for another few years (nothing quite so exciting as the day that first tiny black neck feather appears).
