Default Sexing Shenanigans

I'm not entirely sure if this should go into the Budgie Sexing sextion(get it? Ha, word puns) but I have a bit of a question that may seem either extremely unintelligent or may completely change what I've thought my budgies' genders have been this entire time.

This is Sparks and (Vanilla)Bean, whom I had been informed are definitely female, yet, something odd had happened a little recently that I had the pleasure of seeing. Now, I've done some googling, but I know this is the place I can know for sure.
Sparks (Pied Green/Yellow baby) recently began twitching her head, rather violently, before bursting into dance. (I actually managed to get a video, which is [URL="https://blue-butted-birdy.tumblr.com/post/141235585578"]here [/URL)
And this is where the dumb part comes in: The dancing took me by surprise and I went out of my way to make a forum post mostly because,
I thought that only the males did the mating dances(?). I have read that the females may dance as well, but it really just came out of nowhere. And at the moment, I believe my other bird (Meeko, my Red Rump) may be passing an egg probably because of the longer days/spring, maybe the sudden changes affected the budgies, too?
It didn't seem that Sparks was really dancing for anyone or anything, like a male would do, but I still want to be sure of their gender.

(Also as an added note, two of the new smilies look like my budgies and it makes me happy inside)

They're definitely both female Behaviour is generally not a good indication of gender, since both males and females can sing, chirp, dance, and bob their heads, or be shy and quieter.

I know, I love the new smilies! I wonder what's the occasion?

Your two female budgies are beautiful.
I agree with Star -- behavior is not a good indication with regard to gender.
Each budgie is unique and behavioral traits are shared by both genders.

I'm glad you like the smilies!

I asked for the new ones to be added as I thought they would brighten up the forum.
