Smile Gender inquiry on these bbys

I have these 3 little birds that I'll be giving away and I would love to know their genders, since my neighbor wants a boy!

They are 4 to 5 weeks old and the first one fledged yesterday.





My instinct tells me that the first 2 are boys and the third is a girl, but I need second opinions!

If they're beaks are all a fleshy pink like they appear on my screen then they are all boys. Although I'm concerned about the top one, it's cere has a lot of dark patches on it.

Thanks! Yes, they are all a bit pink-purpe-ish in color.
Why are the dark patches on the cere a concern? My other baby budgie had them and they cleared up as he grew.

Then they're all male
Ah I see, nothing to worry about then. I've just never seen a baby with a cere that was dark like that.

They are gorgeous! First two do look like boys (darkness on the cere is just excess melanin that will sort out in time, nothing to worry about), not totally sure on the last one, though!
