      that drew my attention to this baby initially .. then I ran into his adolescent sibling and saw what they look like in full juvenile feather .. it'll be a long wait to see if he is a he or a she, and what the heck am I going to do about a name?

        Wait or get it sexed (blood drawn sent to lab). With mine, he was named a girl's name and learned to say it by the time he was 5 months old. When his adult plumage came in at age two, it was hard to think to rename him.

        Or simply pick a name that is sexless! :-)

        result within a week.  It's easy to make it part of your initial checkup.  Or, as kishik says, go with a neutral name.  Fortunately, the possibilities there are endless.

          so unless we come up with a gender-free name we'll hold off

          problem is we tend towards people names for our animals ;)
          whippety mix rescue dog = cleopatra (cleo)
          russian blue rescue cat = clyde (came from GA as gary)
          broto rescue bird = mack

          previous dogs - bertha, elizabeth, ruby, otis ;)
