Message:hi i've just got a couple of questions which i hope someone can help me with. We've got 2 nanday conures a male and female. the female is slightly tame and sits on my shoulder. she wont bite me if i pick her up and wolf whistles. My question is there any way of sexing them , we did have the female dna tested which proved her female but she has some behaviors which make her seem like a male. The male isnt very tame as he was bought from an aviary breeder. I had him tested too before we bought him and he does sing, well the way parrots do!! They rub themselves on each other in a sexual way but i've found it just means they like each other. Is the female supposed to feed the male?? and she also does a head bobbing dance and struts from one end of the stick to the other. is this normal?? she also grabs his leg so he cant get away and rubs her tail (cloaca) on his. if anyone has seen this or got an explanation for it please let me know.
many thanks
