Default need help sexing and identifying

This is Eureka. She/he is 1 and a half years old. I also have a regular yellow/green budgie, Skittles, who is 9 months old and a male. All I know of Eureka is that they called it a fancy budgie when I got him/her. I can't seem to be able to sex it or determine what mutations it has; I am too new for this. From all I've read online the eyes shouldn't still be fully black at this point and I should be able to distinguish the sex quite easily. Skittles has a very deep blue cere so I had no problem with him. Any help would be appreciated. I can add more photos if needed.

S/he's a sky blue recessive pied. Recessive pieds can be hard to sex especially when they're young. With your bird, I'm leaning towards female. 1-1/2 year old recessive pied males have dark pink or purply-pink ceres. What I see is a pale blue cere, indicating hen. Has the cere ever turned tan or crusty brown?

This is a picture of my recessive pied male when he was almost 2 years old.

The cere has never gone beige or brown. It was blue when we got her/him at 6 weeks about. It was purple and pink for a few months but now seems to have settled for this blue/white colour. S/he is more aggressive than our male and quite larger; sings non stop and runs around the cage bobbing it's head. Eureka and Skittles spend much of their time preening each other and sharing food.

If his cere was purply-pink, he's male.

The green one is a male, too.

Rec pied eyes are always black.
Looks like a female

rec pied males; pink cere
