    Good question I have never known this with all the birds I have owned. Not like you can see anything that identifies the sex haha! I use to just call all mine boys. Is it true that the boys talk more?

    Not sure at all! He's only 6wks old lol. I just out of habit write 'he' as my older two birds are male (judging from their cere and their behaviors). I won't know for sure for a while yet but there's actually a good chance it's a girl as there's white rings around the nostrils.

    Loco you tell by the cere, the colour above their beaks. Males are blue, females are generally brown Boys are easier to tame and are generally more likely to talk but I think that's just coz the girls are stubborn lol. My eldest boy says his name and 'whatcha doing' and jabbers away all day. If you want to add me on fb I overload my friends with pics and videos of my birds, they're my other children lol.

    Yeah i was wondering cos dad uses to breed them,He always said boys have blue up top & girls have pale pink,Girls also bite like psychopathsIn my general experiences he is correctHard to tell that young though as the colour can vary til they're a bit older.

    Yep females are not as playful and friendly as the males. They tend to be bossy too lol. I'll let you know what this one turns out to be when I know.

    I don't have a pic but when it came time to put them back in their coop I found they'd wandered to the neighbours, we're on half an acre so they'd travelled a bit.

    I had to go next door and walk the chooks home, the neighbour looked on in disbelief as they followed me like the pied piper

    Found a new site today that seriously lightened my mood.
    This is one of my favorites

    http://dog-shaming.com/image/31697903699

    My dogs arent the worst in the world!

    Oh, and I don't have a pic of it but when I came home tonight our new horse was standing on the front verandah. With a 5kg bag of carrots strewn everywhere and a dog bowl in his mouth. The look he gave me was pure "this is the best you've got?"

    I kinda want a budgie now too. I hate cleaning cages so I have to wait till jasper is old enough to ask for one and I can say "only if you clean out it's cage once a (day/week?) " and then I'll probably only have to do it half the time

    Awwww Tormy! He's adorable! I wish our shops had those trolleys, I'd probably take DS shopping more often HEHE.

    Oh wow Littlemissmetal! You have a gorgeous family hun, love your cute bump (having HUGE bump envy ATM, I have nothing!!!).

    Greenhorn! That's cute, I love when a series of photos tells a story.

    Would love to see that Peg! I have a rather large leghorn hen that was rescued from the pound that follows me around the yard, usually with a cat on the other side (the cat is smaller than the chook and she has the cat OWNED!).

    Nawww katherinelouise that lab looks WAY too adorable to have done that HEHE! The visual of your horse is funny, don't you wish we had a camera in our heads sometimes, would have been great to get it on camera . Sounds like you're in for lots of fun with that one!

    Thanks for sharing everyone .

    Sam

    PS. I'm the same Boobycino, I had a white male with a grey spot on his back called 'Elvis' when I was at uni and he was soooooo damn cute, all this budgie talk makes me miss him .

    Actually I want a cockatiel. I had a Grey and white one who was a honey. My mil was baby sitting him and she opened his cage up outside to put food in for him. She then blamed me when I said he couldn't fly away if she opened the food hatch correctly (and showed her how) but she just opened the cage up and of course he got out... she thought he couldnt fly at all. :-/ I like to think he appeared on someone's window ledge begging for food talking and being All cute and friendly and he became one of those birds that people 'find'.
