    Sexing by the eye color is not 100% accurate. Get a DNA test
    done !!
    I was sold a "PROVEN" pair of Mexican RedHead Amazons....
    the male almost killed the female. ( broke her wing & beak)
    After contacting the girl that sold them to me, she then
    admitted that they were NOT proven. After tracing their leg
    bands, I discoverd that he was a pet & she was a breeder,
    that had been passed from home to home, sold as a "proven
    pair". I separated them, & sold them to 2 DIFFERENT homes.
    He is now the PET he deserves to be, & she was sold as a
    breeder. (only after she was completey healed)
    Good luck with your Goffins.
