Default Sexing Azureiventris

I have a trio of azureventris I got back in March of this year, they were about four months out of the water then so that puts them just under a year now. Two if them look almost identical while the third seems a bit fatter, but I can't tell if it's a female or just a fatter frog and my wishful thinking. I haven't heard any calling although my boyfriend swears he's heard them singing softly on a few occasions.
Here is a picture of the one thats a bit bigger and one of the smaller frogs.

I know I have at least 1 calling male in my trio, but other than that, I can't tell if I do indeed have a female or not, as I havent even been able to catch him mid call. For whatever reason, this species runs extremely male heavy. I heard my first calling when they were about 4 to 5 month OOW. They tend to call early, and call late, or not at all.

I did read they were male heavy, but was hoping I might luck out and find myself with a female. Hopefully you have a female too!
Here's to wishing.

I had to separate mine for a day or two to identify each caller. Both males . If you find eggs, you have a female!

I have two, but havenít heard any calling yet. Iím somewhat uncertain of my frogís ages, but theyíre probably between 3-6 months out of the water. Iíve heard that if you play (on repeat) a sound clip of a calling male sometimes that will get the males to start calling..

Mine all started to call around 6 months or so, but not until after I played a recorded call. Trust me, once they start, you'll hear it!

If you don't have any calling by spring... we might have to make a trade!
