Default Please help me sex our two eldest flappers!

As far as i can determine with my very limited knowledge - these are both female - but i'm not really sure! The white one is still quite young..... but i'm starting to think that "She" may be a "he"?- I know we live in Thailand where gender is not always a straightforward matter, but i thought it would be easier with budgies!

I think the white one looks like a boy. Yes there are rings around those nostrils but they're definitely not white and the rest of the cere has the immature pink of a boy. Your green/yellow however definitely has the chalky cere of a female.

Please note, I'm not usually right

To me they both look like girls. I fail to see pink colour on your white budgie's cere, in fact in all the photos the cere appears to be overall white.
By looking at her she appears to be a double factor dominant pied budgie.
Male budgies of this particular mutation have somewhat of tricky ceres. They will have a pinkish coloured cere when young and this will change as they reach maturity. The cere of a mature double factor dominant pied will have a patchy appearance, it will be two toned with pinkish and bluish colours.
The females will have a normal coloured cere, whitish with very faint blue on the edges of the cere while immature and not in breeding condition and dark brown in colour when in breeding condition.

@babytommy - I use a Canon 60D with a pretty universal lense. I'm a tattoo artist so a good camera is essential!

With that last pic I must say that your budgie does look like a boy, I'm now able to see more of a light and uniform purplish cere.
Is that how it really looks in person?

Yeah pretty much exactly actually- earlier it was very bright sunshine so looked a little more washed out...

Then he really is a male budgie. The ceres on pied budgies can sometimes be tricky to tell.
