Not that I know of. There may be some star or goulian in its
history where it has mutated the full red face to the orange
cheeks, but I have never heard of such a case. Or you may be
the lucky breeder of Androginious Pat the Finch.
I would suggest waiting a LONG while and watching the
behaviors. If it's singing to the females and laying eggs,
you might actually have a gender-confused bird... :)
Other then that, I'm stumped.
