How can I tell if my albino parakeet is male or female


How can I tell if my albino parakeet is male or female


Answer:

Hi Ams,

It is usually very difficult to sex an albino parakeet without a DNA test. Generally both sexes will have a pink/lavender cere. Sometimes it will turn white or brown for a female. The female albinos are more common due to the genetics involved. Male parakeets are generally friendlier and more vocal than the females, so you can guess based on behavior. Otherwise you can ask your Vet or do a google search for a DNA test to determine sex.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
