    They're so adorable! The colors are really vibrant. I think you do have two males with the blue/violet ceres, but I guess we can't tell for sure unless they're older.
    As for names, I thought Coconut would be a really cool bird name ^.^ (although i don't know if it would go with the colors exactly)
    The green one could also be Mint or Mango or Sprite. The blue one could be Misty maybe? I don't know--it's all up to you and your tastes, and I thought those names were pretty cute.

    Both of your birds are so cute!! I dont know sexes at all but they both sure do sit differently when perching so I thought perhaps they were different sexes but I think Jasmine knows lots more about keets then I do. With lovies they say they can tell the sex by the way they sit but I know with Keets it is by the color of there ceres. Whatever they are they sure are two little cuties!

    Oh, they are sooooooooo precious! Both of them have beautiful feathering, and the blue one is very unique. If you would like to see a long list of bird names, visit the website "Cockatiel Cottage". Thanks for posting the pics of your new babies!

    I actually don't know a lot about keets, but I used to birdsit a pair for my friend which is where I learned some basic stuff.

    I knew one of them had a brown cere and one sex has the blue cere but the violet cere on this one made me wonder what sex it was so you taught me that boys can also have violet ceres Jasmine.

    Oh yeah, I saw a lot of questions about budgie sexing recently so I decided to go look it up. Violet ceres are less common than the normal blue for males. Considering that I am a pretty new bird owner (not counting birdsitting) I feel honored to have taught you something

    No wonder I never saw a violet cere. Thanks for teaching me that I love bird sitting and wished I knew more people who had birds so I could watch lots of them. I do watch my sisters Amazon, Mango often and he is so great to have around. Well except the fact he likes to bite me.

    However, budgies under a year will also have pink or purplish-pink ceres which is why I can't be sure with a budgie this young.
    I think that birdsitting is really nice if you don't want another bird yet but still want to spend lots of time around them

    The coloring on the keets are just gorgeous. I have always had tiels so I really couldn't help as far as gender. I do know some of the basics such as feeding and caring for the cuties and that is just about it for me. But I do admit bird sitting is awesome. I think of it as a vacation for the bird as well as the family. The last time I had Butch, which was last month, his parront's told me that he squawked for a few days after he was picked up. For some reason, I do believe that our fid's like a little vacation time too.

    When we bird sit for Mango he goes home and flock calls for us for a few weeks, we all think he misses us and all the spoiling time we give him here.

    Your birds are so much beautiful. Parakeet is a colorful bird that try to live in warmer climates and nest in the hollows of high trees so please take care these birds and try to provide natural atmosphere and diet.

    Your 2 budgies are both with good healthy coloring to their feathers. They appear to be both in the prime of their lives.
