    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...

    Male or female

    Hi Me and my wife have bought some cockatiels over the last year and are now planning to do some breeding. We think that sexing of the birds is difficult, and we would be very happy of someone could help us to determine. We would also very much appreciate suggestions of pairs that would be a...

    Male or female Budgie?

    Hi! I posted something like this awhile back while he was still a baby, but I still can’t figure out if my budgie is a male or female. I refer to him as “he” because I always have but his cere seems to change from pinkish to bluish to purplish throughout the day. He has gone through two molts...

    Male or female budgie?

    Hi! We’ve been hand feeding this baby budgie and he’s almost weaned now. We’ve been referring to him as a boy. But now we are unsure! He seems to act like a female, but then again, he’s only around 7 weeks old. Also, I have no idea what his variety or coloring is. Let me know what you think!

    Hello! Advice welcome!

    Hello, everyone! I joined this group because I'm a fairly new bird owner, with a bonded pair of cockatiels and, as of yesterday, two baby budgies! My tiels are Dio and Ladybird, the white is male and the yellow is female. I have yet to name the budgies for obvious reasons. I currently have them...

    2 Male Lovebirds - MAting?

    Hi all, Brand new here. My son inherited 2 lovebirds, apparently 2 males. They are "young" but mature (over a year old) and are very healthy. They are well bonded, get along, and do all things a couple should do. But I want to check in on this. I understand that 2 males can bond and even...

    Sexing a Parakeet.

    I just joined here today. :) I adopted a parakeet from my work not long ago that was severely bullied by the other birds. At the time he had no butt feathers. :( I ended up nursing him back and then started to bond with him at work. After that I ended up just taking him home. Unfortunatly I am...

    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...

    DNA sexing wrong?

    My 4 month old Pineapple GCC has been acting strange lately. She grabs my finger with her beak and puts either one or both of her feet on it, and fluffs up a bit and wags her tail. Does this mean she is trying to mate with me? The breeder DNA sex'd her female, but I'm not convinced she isnt a...

    Introducing My Two Parakeets, Sexing, & Taming

    Jewel - A rather flat, lightly-tinted blue cere covered in a tan-esque skin, with a few loose flakes of tan here and there. They're a very standard-patterned budgie with aquamarine blue. Lyra - A quite bulbous, fleshy-colored cere with somewhat pink tones. There is no hint of either brown or...
