male or female?

Does anyone know how to tell a male vs. female...

I've looked it up, but it's always so vague..

I really can't tell what puddle is.

Looking to get another of the opposite sex so I can marry him/her and have babbbbbiieieeeeesssss <3

Males will have blue wing feathers and a blue rump, also could have a blue streak behind the eye.

Could it be possible for a green female to have a blue streak behind the eyes and blue on the rump.... and does not have blue wing feathers? Or is this impossible? If it is impossible my Ellie may be male. When I got her from the breeder I was told she was female. One of her parents was green the other blue.

Lucida females have blue on the rump and can have a blue streak, but do not have blue on the wings.

The blue wing edges are what I really look for. The p'let is a female if no blue wing edges, the males will definitely have them (barring some special mutations like the lutino and albino). A p'let with lucida influence can have a blue rump and/or blue eye streak. Usually not as pronounced as a male, but it can vary depending on how much the lucida is influencing their colors...

When I first got my 4 1/2 month old blue male he had no eye streaks nor could you see any wing edges... You still can't easily... He did not get eye streaks till he was a year or so... If you open up his wings ( very carefully , to avoid losing fingers!) he is VERY blue on both top and bottom of them... 100% all male!! He always has had a very dark blue patch on his rump.
