It depends on what sort of parakeet. There are many different types of parakeets and therefore different ways of telling the sex of it. In budgerigars (one type of parakeet) the males have a blue cere (bit above the beak) and females have a brown cere.

there is a way but its very hard to tell however it can be done- hold the bird tightly but gently in your hand -with your other hand on the underneath of its belly follow down a straight line-u will feel boney part. now start at the tail and u will feel a v alittle above the tail feathers. if u can fit ur pinky between the open part of the v its said to be a female. it the bones are so close together u cant fit your pinky tip between them its a male. also u can send away for a free DNA kit where u use a very small amount of blood <they tell u to clip a nail just to get a pin drop of blood>and send it back for a fee of 39.99 each bird (i think that's how much it is).
