LOL Adam wasn't exactly fighting him off either!

I love how Adam has so much red under his throat. I've never seen a BH with that much. Beautiful.

I recommend getting them both DNA sexed again. I have definitely heard of  mistakes with test results. This is found out when eggs are laid after the owner thought both birds were of same sex.

From the behavior Chante is definitely a male and he is the one I have a DNA certificate for, Adam was used as a breeder so I am failry confident the breeder was correct when she said he was male. A friend of mine has seen that with her 2 male African Greys.
There are 3 subspecies of Blue Headed Pis and the ones from Peru tend to be bigger and have more red, and at 312 gr Adam qualifies as a big boy
