Okay, you would probably have to DNA him/her then if you want to know for sure. Since pearl is sex-linked, there might have been a way to tell what he/she was by the parents' mutations. Unfortunately, pied is the hardest to visually sex and where males will usually lose their pearl markings after their first molt, pearl pieds make the exception. Pearl pied males will keep their pearl markings for life or will lose them slowly over time.

It depends on where you live. I live in Canada so I use HealthGene, and they are 99% accurate and only $17 each. I'm pretty sure you can order them because I order mine all the time, but it depends on where you're ordering from. It doesn't cost me to order any of them but since you don't live in Canada, I'm not sure if ordering from there will be expensive.
