well mango is DNA'd male.

still assuming munch is female. based on behaviours.

which are:
tucking stuff into her feathers.
aggressive
shreds things like crazy
wider stance
wider tail
bulkier

while these arent accurate on their own for guessing gender, but throw all those together say female to me....

but, when let out of the cage with mango i have caught her mounting him as well as him mounting her (which i stop as theyre siblings)....
often though she does raise her tail in the air and flutter her wings... thats a female thing...


what do you guys think on this?

this is munch

and if you look in her rump feathers you can see where she tucked stuff in

I thought males tuck stuff in their feathers as well to put In the nest mine did that. Then again I got told it was a female yet my female laid fertile eggs one time and I had no other lovebirds but the two. Why don't you get it DNA'd? To be on the safe side.

My female lovie used to sound exactly like that, she always tucked stuff into her feathers.

And don't worry about the mounting, birds do it whether they are male or female for some reason
