JACKSON - Citron Cockatoo

This is the picture of the other Citron Cockatoo, Jackson.

I have 2 citron cockatoos and I think they may both be males but I was sure hoping I had one female. She is about 2-1/2 years old and her eyes have not turned brownish-red yet. Does this mean she may be a boy? What age does the eye color change.

Thank you, Linda

Telling Cockatoo Gender by eyes

Eye color is not always reliable. It is also subjective. You need to have your birds DNA sexed to know for sure what you have. Some birds? eye color does not completely change until 5 years of age.
