Thanks I’m the same I was positive it was a girl but now I’m not too sure iv got some better pictures now she’s out of the cage. She’s still in molt so her feathers are still fluffy.

I can't tell if it's just shadow, as it seems darker in some pictures. I think (the 3rd picture looks the clearest) that it is a male, but I am really not sure.

I can't think who to tag, I'm sorry. @Zara any members come to mind?

I understand that, my parrotlets are the same.

Hopefully someone can give you a more decisive answer soon!

Welcome to the Avenue Kirsty :starshower1:

I cannot quite see clearly on the pics, so if you are unsure you will either have to wait for the markings or run a DNA test :)

Also, is that your birds cage? Have you thought of upgrading it?

Thankyou Zara
She’s just in that cage temporarily as I have a male IRN who she was in with but unfortunately they had a really big fight yesterday so I had to separate them!and that was the only cage available, Which I think if she turns out to be male that would be the reason why my other RN keeps chasing and snapping at her I have ordered a new bigger cage to put her/him in
