Hi! As some of you may know, I recently adopted my beautiful Ollie at the beginning of November...

Well when we met Ollie, the breeder was SOOOOOOO sure Ollie was male. I've had past experience with a tortoise being told it was one gender when really it was the other, so of course I got DNA sexing done.
Andddddd..... turns out Ollie is a little girl!
I'm happy with her anyway, she's my beautiful baby. Just found it so funny that this breeder was so so sure, said he had been doing it for years, and was a little offended when I asked for the sexing. Ha!

I just replaced all of Ollie's blue things with pink :laugh:

Has this happened with anyone else? :lol:

No let the little girl have blue things also. I just hate when they say that pink is a female color. All color is for everyone. :)
Has this happened with anyone else? :lol:
No not really. I did contact the breeder of a rescue I had and wonder where her DNA was.
He told me that their was no DNA done. He was 100% sure that my Poi was a female because he had been breeding them for so many years.
And it turn out that he was right because I was DNA her myself.

Ollie is really cute! ♥

You are joking, aren't you? I am not a fan of pink and try not to buy bird toys that are pink but nothing to do with sex of bird or birds being afraid of that color. I just don't like pink. :D

Congrats! She's just too precious!

@Eloy thinks my Leto pionus is female because of the way he acts. But i got him dna'd. He's just a mostly sweet boy :)

She's a real cutie, for sure!

We had a similar thing happen with Omega, our budgie. Our trusted pet shop, from which my wife bought Omega, convinced her that the bird she was buying was a male. After a few months, we were surprised with an egg. Her cere still makes her LOOK like a boy, though...;)

Well Ollie is the cutest baby girl I've ever seen! :xflove:


Years ago my parents had a budgie named Henry, who lived with his best buddy Timmy. Turns out Henry was a Henrietta and they ended up having beautiful babies together :lol:

@Macawnutz ha girls are easier… everyone in my house is female, there's a lot of estrogen going on :pinkgrin: was trying to switch it up with a male but I guess we will always be a Girl's House :laugh:

@faislaq she is a pro destroyer of all colors. And come on that strawberry picture is ADORABLE of course it’s my background! although there are so so many cute photos I take of her
@cassiesdad that is exactly what I didn't want to happen - no surprise eggs! Good thing I got the test done :lol:
@melissasparrots “you bleed less often usually” haha :loltears: I used to have a female eclectus when I was growing up, she was always more agressive than our male eclectus... she put a hole in his beak once! fiesty little girl, the male never quite forgave her for that

@lyx that’s so funny they had babies :pinklol:

Thanks everyone for the compliments, Ollie loves being told how pretty and cute she is :p

Macaws? The females can be drama queens but the males have mean streaks. ;) You just have to let them get of proper age.
