I'm Lois, Randy's wife. Mom to Conner/Connie, Sweet Pea, Petey (our cockatiel) and soon to have Clancy .... I could have sworn Randy was loving our being alone after the kids all moved out !!! haha
I have a question. Conner not only preens the baby Quaker, Sweet Pea, but he/she uses his/her beak and "feeds" the youngster. Do males do this? Or is this a sure sign that Conner is a Connie? All the signs I am seeing are maternal and not paternal actions. I'm also looking at this with a human chick perspective and not one of a feathered chick's.
Any info you have would be greatly appreciated and would be more than what I presently have.
By the way, what a wealth of knowledge stowed away on this message board. Its certainly helped us allot in the past few months. I am sure we will be getting more help for several years to come.
Thanks in advance for the replies.
