identifying female turquiosine

It is generally stated that female turquoisine looks duller and lacks red bars in their wings. In my case when three babies came out from the nest two had distinct red bars in their wings one slightly duller had no red bars.

After two months the duller one had shown two/three red spots at their wings but it had white lores ( the region between eyes and the bill on the side of the bird head). However the other two having red bars have no whiter lores. Can any confirm that the slightly duller one is a female?

identifying female turquiosine

I'm not familiar with the Turquiosine, but the usual rulle is that babies do not look like adults until they are adults. I'm not sure it applies in this case because I'm not sure with this type of bird. Hopefully, someone else will have an answer for you or you can go on the net and do a search to find breeders and forums dedicated to your kind of birds.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
