Awesome photos. I have to get some of mine on here!

Are Shade and Killi dna sexed female?



Correction- I just read back that Shade is not DNA sexed. I think Shade is a little boy based on the v on his chest and his beak size. He looks very similar to my DNA sexed male. The females I've seen are all dainty with smaller beaks and the point of the v on the chest is much lower than on the males. Killi could go either way. BTW- this is not scientific... just based on Senegals that I've seen and stuff I've read.

Here is Pippin.

I need to get some good pics with our new fancy camera and post them.

I like the expression of barely controlled terror on his face

First off, nice pictures everyone! (wow I haven't been around in a while..)

Well compared to her "brother", the V on her chest is much lower and her beak somewhat smaller and her head is definitively rounder (I've read that males have a "flat" head, which is the case of her sibling). Her sibling looks much like my male Red-bellied (other than colours of course), she doesn't. So I'm going to continue to assume she's a female ;)

You are probably correct especially if she has a smaller beak and head compared to her brother. The girls just look daintier. Also, I'm known at the pet store I work at for always guessing the sex of the baby birds incorrectly!
