You can also tell the difference from the color of their noses. If the nose it blue it's a male if it's pink it's a girl.

Cere color that is! The only visual way to tell is by the color. (Male blue or deep purple, female pink or brown) Juvenile parakeets will usually have the same colration as a female. So be patient, or you can take the bird to the vet and have a DNA test.

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.

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

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

Generally, a male Bourke's parakeet has a blue forehead and the female lacks the blue coloring. Males are also larger than females.

It might peak the male's head for fun. My parakeet does that and my dad says they are just having fun.

no females are more aggressive than males mainly because in the wild they must defend there young
