Boy or Girl? VOTE!

I know it doesn't really matter at all if my African Grey baby is a girl or boy (other than differing personalities that are specific to the particular bird) but in your opinion, what should I get? A boy or girl?
I have two names that I love that I have in mind for a girl. Alexandra and Evalin. For a boy, I'm not sure. Alex, maybe? Right now I have more girl birds than boys.
What about if YOU were to go out and get a Grey right now, and there was a boy and a girl and you don't see much of any personality differences, which would you take home?

(This is mainly for fun, I will really just have to wait until I meet the babies.)

That's funny, Daisy, that's just how I am. I always thought for sure I would get a male Grey.
Yet my indecisiveness always takes over.....

Ashlynn is a female, and I'm always finding myself more drawn to the female greys, timneh or congo. So, I'm swimming upstream and voting female.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

I agree, Donna. I think, in part, it's because I like to root for the underdog, but female greys just seem so much more... inquisitive... to me? Dunno. It's probably just in my head, but I'm drawn to the girls
