Young females have a bluish beak until they are mature where it starts to turn white and then ivory to brown when they are ready to breed.

The young male has a purple looking beak until they are mature and then it turns to blue. If you have a young bird who has a blue beak, then it is probably a female. Give it about a year or so before deciding which you have. Female will have ivory to brown at maturity and male will have a nice blue beak at that time.

Thanks for writing,
