Cant really tell by the picture, but to me the shape of the grey's head is bigger and I want to say its a boy, and the sky is a girl. but I never know :\

In the picture the grey was curious and the blue was scared of the camera.

they sit around and preen each other and chase eachother around the cage.

I havent really picked out names yet

My first assumption was that they are both girls. both are clearflight, one has blotching/patches on the front(dominant?) or are they just considered clearflight pied. They came from the same clutch I know and are very similar. the grey seems to have white feathers and the blue seems to have yellow tint to them. in the picture the grey looks to have yellow tint but it was taken on my camera phone.

They're beautiful! I've no idea about mutations, but I'd guess girl then boy.

Yellow face opaline clearflight pied grey (male I think). Although he looks mauve the colour of the cheek patches show that his mutation is grey

Yellow face opaline dominant pied sky blue male

As they are siblings they could both be dominant pieds and the first one is just not showing the usual clear areas on the front. A photo of the parents would probably show which mutations are possible, and as opaline is a sex linked mutation the mother's mutation could help identify the sex of the chicks

Look like siblings to me, and i'd agree with nev in suspecting the first one is a dominant pied without the belly band.

Cute lil things
