Sorry if theres way too many of these but can someone help me sex my Kakariki? I can't tell using her leg spread difference since she sleeps on a single leg, and I don't know how big her beak has to be for her to be male. Could someone help?

Pictures:




I can get more pictures if you need them, I also read of a understripe? She has a red dash under her wing but it's not that big and I wouldn't call it a dash.

signlol @ blonde moments (we all have them every now and then)

Grrrr... Wink
If u find where, i can not remeber such a statement any where....
Beak shape/ size yes
Strip underside of the wing yes
Body size yes
head shape yes
The latter 3 are not well defined, and sometimes noticable only in flocks when compared with the 1st 2

Steps.

Lol. What do you guys think she is? Peter said she looks like a girl, and I think she has that girlish flair (hard to explain).

Like Peter I think it is female... sometimes it is not obvious ..females usually have smaller shorter beaks, males larger and broader.
