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 male due to this behaviour. It is also odd that she is doing this at a young age. She also tries to regurgitate to me and my other bird, a budgie.

Please help me! I don't know whats going on.

Just like a toddler, she's testing out things, practicing, and figuring out what feels good. They can be wrong but are 99% accurate.

With regards to DNA testing I think it really depends on how well lab is run. I've heard of sloppy labs that don't have the best reputation. I know of birds who were DNA tested male but then later laid an egg. You might want to do the DNA test again if you find a different lab
