Unfortunately, there is no other possible way of distinguishing their sexes except their ovipositors which will not be visible until they are in breeding conditions. This comes down to either try to buy several adults and see if they pair with your female parrot or not, or you try to buy a group of juveniles and raise them until the time they begin pairing off.
