    Need help sexing these Cherryheads and Yellowfoots

    Please help me sex these Cherry heads and Yellow foots. I seem to be really bad at this with this group and they were extremely uncooperative so the pictures aren't the best! I think Bing is a male? Van and Santina females? As for the Yellows, I think Lisbon is a female? Meyer was sold to...
