Default What kind of budgie do I have?

Hi, I am new to this as well as being a budgie owner! I have a few questions about my Budgie Sky(the white and blue one). I would like to know what kind of budgie I have also how old and what sex? Any help? I have attached some pictures of Sky.
Thank you

Thank you! I was thinking that Sky is Male and Kiwi(green one) female?
Sky's cere is purple/pink? I know that in pied's that would mean a male?

pink/purple cere means male
white/cream cere means female

.............generally this will be the case

it can get confusing sometimes when albino/lutino i think not 100% sure.

are they related? if so would seperate them dont want any babies lol or naughtyness between them lol

Oh ok!
No they are not related. So they only have babies together if they are related? Can they have babies if they are not?
They do have their little fights every so often lol.... but generally preen eachother and feed eachother.
Also... I having a hard time to get to come to me or me trying to "pet" them. Sometimes(at night) I can pet their bellies. not often though.
I do put my hand in their cage everyday. i dont know if I am supposed to slowly go to them or just to keep my hand still?

It is hard for me to see the color of the blue ones cere, it looks like it could be pink or brown but if it is pink it is a male He is a sky violet clearflight pied spangle.

The green one is a female, and she is either a light violet green normal or a dark green normal, her colors look different in different pics depending on the light

male and females will mate regardless if related or not lol
so if you do decide to breed later on its good that they are NOT related as the babies will be healthy, if related could lead to gentic problems

Lol...ok thank you guys so much!
So now that I know I have male and female. If I wanted, when could I breed them (do they have to be older?)and what would I need to do? Lol
If they were to have babies.. Is there anything I would need to do for the babies?
