You can also tell the difference from the color of their noses. If the nose it blue it's a male if it's pink it's a girl.

Cere color that is! The only visual way to tell is by the color. (Male blue or deep purple, female pink or brown) Juvenile parakeets will usually have the same colration as a female. So be patient, or you can take the bird to the vet and have a DNA test.
