Question Are these 2 a breeding pair?

I have a few photos that have some questions, are these ready to breed? And are these a pair ( male and female ) Blue budgie is Marie and Green one is Jerry. They are well over 2 years old been with each other for 1 year. There ceres change to a point where they're totally opposite to where they are somewhat similar. Marie has gotten her yellow iris before Jerry. I dont want to force them into breeding because it can kill marie. And if they are bred ready do they now how to court? Ive seen Jerry dance for marie and feed her, but some males do that for other males including other species, soo. Yeah so many questions took these photos a min ago hoping to see some valuable insight from others. Thanks in advance!

Re: Are these 2 a breeding pair?

Like pedro said, they are all boys but they look like they are quite friendly by the way you are holding them

Re: Are these 2 a breeding pair?

The OP said they are all over 2 years old, at that age it would be pretty apparent if one of them were female.

Re: Are these 2 a breeding pair?

I was thinking they were both girls too....its been a long time since I bred them. I can verify once I get home. For their coloring of your birds, the male should be a dark blue cere. When females are in breeding mode their cere turns crusty brown while light blue when not in breeding mode. But you can also sex them by the shape of their nostrils while one is oval and the other is round.

Funny that you mention that, I remember on occasions more than once where Maries cere was really crusty and A l l brown she was a bit bigger than rest, while at same time jerrys was pink and he was still very tiny. So I can say its not breeding season? is why her nostrils is light blue, Ahh the nostrils right will check and double check them for that.

Sounds like description of marie and jerry 4 months ago, exactly to the D.

when its not in breeding mode the cere goes back to a colour that can be mistaken for a male ?

Ah so these are still young according to their colouring then, theyre 2 and 3/4s years old no exact date sorry.

Brown and permanent like when they are matured 4+ years olds, where no matter their mood to breed or not they're cere remains brown?

Thanks all or swift responses, edgar was sad when I told him that marie is most likely a boy since he really wants to see a few eggs hatch from them.
I truly appreciate the help

Re: Are these 2 a breeding pair?

Can you get better pic of Jerry's cere? So iI can view the nostrils. Marie I am pretty sure its a girl. They can be bred at one year old.
