    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.
