Sounds like a recipe for eggs to me :)

I know. Pretty babies though.

I am only 22, I am too young to be a grandfather! Lol.

They're both beautiful, are they babies? I noticed that they both appear to have deep blue ceres which, I believe, in adults means male. Two males often behave this way together. When I was a child we had two lovely males who were devoted to each other, and Stormy (blue) would groom and feed Joey (Green) and lived happily together for many years:-))

I noticed the blue too and wondered if they were the same sex - no eggs then and no fear of becoming a grandad at 22 :)

I also know about the blue ceres. Sky's previous companion was a female with a brown cere.

Lightning was put down after a long illness and was on palliative care and was in so much pain and miserable.

The only thing that got me was that Sky was examined by an avian vet who said that she was exhibiting female characteristics and so could possibly be female.

I know Sunny is an adult male.

Maybe two males.

That would be best.

Sunny loves to squawk.

Even vets can get it wrong, I had a canary that sang beautifully so they said it was a male - and then 'he' laid eggs :)

LOL. You are not the first person who has found out their bird is the opposite sex.
