sorry, no clue here
but I'm not that good sexing kakariki by picture
if they are males they'll kickly get bigger than their mother
if females then they'll stay about the size of the mother
also hold them and compare the width of their beaks, that will give you an idea if the chicks are the same sex or not

cheers / Pablo
