    Green cheek color mutation

    Hello, my pets decided to have babies. I am very curious about their color mutation. Parents are what I think a yellowsided dilute and a pineapple (I will attach pic). Three of the babies I think they are like dad (yellosided dilutes) and one looks like a normal green cheek. Is this possible? No...

    How To Sex A Baby Budgie

    Right, so recently, I bought myself a third budgie bird (couldn't help myself!). He was said to be a male (three months old), but upon closer examination, I saw an anomaly! He has a deeper blue colour around the bottom edges of his cere, which fades into a really light, almost pastel, green...

    Please help me determine my bird’s gender w.r.t its behaviour

    My bird -‘Tweety’ raises its tail and bows its head as if it wants to mate. Is it a possibile sign of a female? Doesn’t whistle in a tune and doesn’t sing either, I’m hesitating in getting a Dna test done as plucking feathers might cause it a pain, which I feel isn’t worth. Can anyone please...

    Male or female tiel? Rubbing vent on finger!

    I got my cockatiel, Nibbler, from a breeder about a year or so ago. The breeder originally told us it was a male, but then checked again by feeling the vent and said she was a girl. Today we witnessed our birdie rubbing the vent against my fiance's finger for the first time. I have been...

    can you determine sex by masturbation?

    My lutino tiel is just over a year old. At first we thought she was a boy, but because of her lack of tuneful singing (skipping record yapping) we now think she's a girl. However the other day, Tango discovered masturbation. Then I realised this could be a way to sex her(/him?) Tango has a...
