Hi,

My daughter has got 2 specimens, both of which are older than 18 months.
I am somewhat confused because from the source we got the first one (savage type), it was identified to be a female. But the colors of the wings do not match. See it for yourself...
The colors and mutations of the parents are unknown.

For the second one, pearl grey, we were always to believe that it is also a male, but again, the colors do not mach the description... Maybe we are lucky and the first one is a male and the second one is a female, exactly the opposite compared to what we thought :)

Thanks in advance!

The first one is most definitely a male. Since the second one is a whiteface pearl pied, then it could be male or female. Male pearls most usually will lose their pearl markings as they get older, but when pied is mixed in with the pearl mutation, males can keep their pearl markings. The best way to know for sure what the whiteface is to DNA it.
