The main differences are :-

1) The yellow one has a dark blue spots above his/her beak, while the green has a lighter blue spot.
2) The green is larger in size, but i am not sure if both birds have the same age.

Can anyone advice if it is possible to know their sex?

Thanks

Welcome to the forums to you and your two cuties! I would think the yellow headed one with the darker blue on the "cere" is a boy, the other could be a female but I'm not sure. One of our other members like @Rozalka or @Laurasea may know.

In the meantime maybe this chart may help ...

Do they have names yet? Gorgeous budgies, welcome to our online flock!

Yellow one is definitely adult male.

Green budgie appears to be young female.

They're very cute:)

Yup, I agree with the others. You should get them a bigger cage, and get them off an all-seed diet, though. They have the potential to be great buddies and live 8+ years with proper care!

To add to this, I suggest getting a cage at least 40Γ—40Γ—60cm long if possible. Add only about 4-5 toys, but swap them with others at least weekly. Don't suddenly fill their cage with toys, do it gradually. I suggest keeping them in the current cage you have until they have settled in.

For diet I suggest 50% seeds, grains, etc, and the rest is veggies, fruit, herbs etc.

often budgies take to leafy lettuces very easy. Just hang a leaf if romane lettuce or weave in cage bars. They will often start nibbles right away. And romaine lettuce has good vitamins, its actually a great source if vitamins A!
Broccoli, peas and bell pepper are also usually a big hit. Try offering on a plate so they have room go explore. You don't limit any of their normal food.
My budgies are veggies lovers.

You will need to offer a cuttlefish bone as well, for calcium and they use to shape beak . You can offer a little boiled egg shell and they will eat that as well.
