    He's a masked for sure now lol!

    I can see the violet in the rump now, it looked green on the first photos!?

    The orange on the chest is not from a black-cheeked, it's just suffusion, that will moult away leaving a yellow breast and neck. The back of the head is a darker yellow, which is normal for a masked ... it looked olive coloured in the first photos!?

    Just shows how deceiving photos can be!

    Thank you Lauren and Mask! Its 3 1/2 months old now, when should I expect it to moult? Is there any way to tell if its a male or female without paying for the test?

    The first moult should happen any time now, around 4 months old. It's not a full moult. The first full moult happens when they are about 12 months old.

    I can usually sex them by stance and build, but until the bird is at least 6-8 months old, it's next to impossible.
