What gender are my budgies ?

i have 2 budgies and ive had them for about 4 months, i’m pretty sure they’re males but i‘m not certain. i want to get a third budgie, but i’m scared i’ll choose a female and then they’ll start breeding. i do NOT want bird eggs 😓 someone please let me know if i can get a female budgie without her breeding with my other budgies! (if they’re male)

    I bought my budgie from a bird place. She was around 8 weeks old. They told me she was a female. The cere is now brown so I know she is a female. A specialist bird place and not just a pet store should know.

    I heard that sometimes budgies change their gender.

    I was told that the nostrils above the beak is how you tell, males have a blue-grayish color like in the pic, and females have a pink-orangish color.
