Default Male or female, dominant or recessive?

I have looked at every picture on the site but I still don't know! First because I don't know what he/she is, .. Recessive or dominant?? and that makes sexing harder! I have a for sure male and they get along well. I have a female and he/she does not like her so it makes me think its a female but from what pics I have seen so far...is a male.

Update: Coconut is spending a lot of time in the little nest hut that I hung in the cage. Is that normal for a male? My other "for sure" male is not doing that!

It is best not to use coconut huts for budgies - even for males.

Having those type of enclosed spaces in a cage can trigger mating/breeding behaviors as well as aggressive and territorial tendencies.

I'd recommend you remove it right away.
There are plenty of other kinds of toys to offer your birds.
