Pluto is difficult to tell with those pictures but it looks like a male.

Viggo is most definitely male.

Little is most definitely female.

:) Try to get another picture of Pluto in natural light with no flash.

Pluto looks male to me. BUT.. he doesn't look recessive pied. (which is what I thought when I read your description.) He looks to be a grey greywing Opaline. But I'm not sure if that's shadowing playing tricks on my eyes or what because I keep seeing a darker splotch of grey on his belly.
Can you take more pictures of him? ^^ Either by a window or maybe take the cage outside in the sunlight for more naturally lighted pictures. (No camera flash though!)

Viggo is a normal cobalt male. (possibly violet cobalt but again, I'd need naturally lighted pictures to see. ^^ )

Little is a cobalt Opaline female.

WoW! So little might be a girl?
Oh, and about pluto, he have changed a bit, i always looked at him as white, but the last months he actually have gotten more texture in light grey. How beautiful =)

I gonna tell a short story.
When i bought Viggo and Little:

I went into the store looking for ONE bird to pluto (a friend)

It turned out that the store had two birds left, but the owner didnt want to
sell only one of them because they have become so good friends, preening
and kissing each other.
So she told me that i had to get both.
She told me she have never done this before, but because she didnt have
heart to split them, i got BOTH for the price of ONE!

So i got both, they are now in same cage while pluto are alone in another.
(pluto are very teritorial and leaps and charges the other birds when they
are in hes company.
Sometimes, pluto go to viggo and tries to preen and kiss him, but viggo
dont want to.

So i felt maybe pluto got confused and depressed so i decided to keep
him alone only letting them all met 4-5 hours a day in my livingroom.

Little and Viggo already was bounded in the store i guess.



Sorry i use a phone cam without flash, but in yellowish light in this room.
i dont have a better camera, but i will try to see if i can find better light.

To sad those two (not pluto) arent very tame, and wont sit on my
finger when my finger tries to separate them:(

It is difficult to be sure of PLUTO's mutation without seeing the wings but judging by the soft body colour, the pink feet and the splashes of white in the cheek patches, my guess would opaline cinnamon spangle

VIGGO is a normal grey male

LITTLE is an opaline grey female
