Well, the most obvious option would be DNA testing, which is performed on some bird species in zoos because it is difficult to tell the genders of certain species. However for a pet owner this is a costly option.
However, if you'd like to choose that option, there are services such as Avian Biotech and BioBest. DNA is of course 99% accurate.
To perform a free gender check yourself, you need to look at the cere. That is the bulbous, fleshy area where the beak meets the head.
An adult male with have a blueish, sometimes purple-ish coloured cere. An adult female will have a brown cere.
A juvenile male will have a pinkish to purple cere. A female juvenile will also have a pink cere until she is about 4 months old, which is when it will turn white with a varying amount of light blue. At 8 months both genders would have developed their adult colour cere.
Beware however that in some species, this method does not work. In pastel budgies for example, the ceres may be pink or tan for both genders, making sexing difficult using the cere method.
Another characteristic is that the males have a more bulbous cere while females have a flatter head. Though this difference won't immediately be obvious to a bird owner unless they are an expert.
Male parakeets will also perform mating dances, sometimes even if no females are present. A male will "dance" by scurrying along the length of a perch while bobbing his head. Males are also the singers.
Female parakeets "chatter" more than males but only sing on the uncommon occasion. Female parakeets also tend to be more aggressive than males and have a stronger nip (bite).
the male will start feeding the hen
As they grow up a male parakeet gets a blue nose (The thing above the beak) and the female get a mire milk like nose?
A female parakeet can lay an egg without a male, but it will not be fertilized, therefore the egg will not hatch. So, yes, a female parakeet does need a male to "hatch" an egg.
Probably when they are very affectionate with one another or you have baby parakeets.
if laying, yes/
if their beak is kind of blueish, purplish then its a boy
to tell you look at there nostrill if it is blue or purple
I just purchased a female Parakeet and a week later purchased a Male. Currently they are both in differetnt cages but I would like to know if I can put them together ?
A male parakeet has a blue nose. A female parkeet has a brown nose.
It is the same as looking at a regular parakeets nose, the darker the blueish color you know its male the lighter the pinkish color then its a female.
There are no particular signs that a male parakeet is ready to breed...they breed when they can find a willing female keet to breed with (as long as they are old enough).
Both. My parakeet is male and sings just about every morning, and my friend has 2 parakeets, one male, one female and they both sing.
A female parakeet has blue-tipped wings and a male parakeet has red-tipped wings.
Depends on the male if it usually goes in the nest then yes
no it will not. Actually it help the female parakeet with the babies. don't be scared if they enter the nest.
I don't think so. I read that adult female parakeets noses are brown and that adult male parakeets noses are blue. But, young female parakeet's noses are "bluish" and a young male parakeet's nose is pink.
Both male and female parakeets sing, squawk, chirp, etc.
yes, animals do not discriminate by age
The female and male parakeet do a cloaca kiss and make a baby bird deedadee
you can leave them together all the time
It might peak the male's head for fun. My parakeet does that and my dad says they are just having fun.
The white nose is female and the blue nose is male
