Default Help determining gender

The clerk at the pet store said this was a male. With the research I did I think it might be a female (white around the nostrils). What do you guys think? Also- any idea how old? It has bars almost all the way to the cere. So, I figure pretty young.

Holley looks to be a female that is definitely less than 6 months old

She's a beautiful little girl!

I would agree that she's less than six months old

I look forward to seeing lots more of her!

Yup, I think the general rule with pet store clerks is to take what they said and conclude the exact opposite.

And you're right, the bands on her crest indicate that she's most likely under six months. As an aside, I absolutely adore that mutation!

Mutation? Her coloring? I tried to find what she's called, the clerks called "HIM" just "blue." I can't figure out what she is exactly. I do know she's pretty!

Yeah! "Mutation" is just another word for the genes that influence colouring/patterning. :3

She looks to be sky blue with a dilution of some kind possibly dilute or greywing. I really like the washed out/pastel look it gives off.
