    Gender identification: Lovebirds

    I was wondering if there was any ways I could identify my lovebirds gender simply with behavior? If not, could anyone send me a link to a DNA testing I can buy online?

    Albino Budgie Gender?

    Hi, I have an albino budgie I think is about 8 months old. We think it's a girl because of her cere color but being albino it's somewhat hard to tell. "She" is very timid (from our experience females can be very timid) but also talks a LOT, like a male budgie, and that's what confuses us. Any...
