Hello everyone! I just wanted to ask what to look for in a female bird. I am pretty sure Passion is a female, but I really don't know. Do all Lovebirds put twigs (Millet Stem) under their wings and bring it up high? I feel like that's something female birds do to make a nest.
In other words:
How can I tell Passion is female by observing her behaviors?
Thanks a lot!

My boys do it too :)

An egg is the best and most accurate indicator of a female bird.

Some hormonal behaviours can give you a good guesss, but they´re not accurate enough to sex a bird. For eg the boys will do the ear scritching and clicking sound whereas the girls do the aerroplane motion and hold it. But some girls also make the clicking sound, and one of my boys will spread his wings like a ¨girl¨ but not hold it quite as long.
