    I think I see an yellow iris and the beak looks fairly mature. If it's an adult, it looks like a female. If it's an older juvie it may still be too soon to tell.

    thankyou so much for taking a look, yeah the yellow iris does point towards its maturity,any idea by what age does the yellow iris appear? because i think its still pretty young because i have adult parrots too and they can hold a fruit by their claws and eat it but this one cant yet

    Their eye color usually gets lighter at around a year of age as far as I know.
    Not every bird likes to hold things with their feet! :) My late male IRN would never hold things with his feet, except once in a while he'd rest a piece of food or toy against the perch and hold it down with his toe. He'd never pick anything up and hold in his foot though.
    My female IRN also usually doesn't hold or pick up things with her feet, but it does happen. Usually only with toys, not food :)

    I've never seen my bully use his feet for anything other than movement. In one picture, her leg looks banded, is It? If so, it should have her hatch year. Ask your AV.
    Her eyes lighten as she nears sexual maturity. It looks like a sexually- mature female, but that's not saying much.
