Yep, I haven't seen them much. Golden and Albino are more common and lesser in price. You know they need to be DNA tested for knowing their sex? Even the experts cannot tell the sex from looking at them. Some breeds have identical males and females. Mine were sexed too, cost me some money and inconvenience.
You had to know the sex to make sure they wouldn't have a clutch you mean?
Occasionally you'll have birds like that, where the sexual dimorphism is almost nonexistent. So I believe it.
I'd like to think he found a nice flock of geese or some shit to fly south with. But to be honest, he probably died in the first 48 hours.
Those birds are larger than my tiny parakeets, so they're probably a lot smarter too. You had them when they were just little babies. I don't think I could have ever set them free like that. I'm too selfish and attached to mine. @_@
And those are gorgeous birds. So pretty.
Sometimes I turn a blind eye to being felt up if distracted (beer and food)...Naomi, don't think less of me ....IT MEANT NOTHING TO ME
I meant, differentiating male from female. People try to guess on the basis some differences, as size of beak and head, feather colors, etc. I see many experts making wrong assessment. Best way is DNA Sexing.
Oh! Omg! Milly milly milly milly. =D
Like the same way you would neuter or spay a cat or dog.
Well yeah. He was bright ass blue, so he didn't blend in very well with anything. He was a funny bird though. Once, he was sitting on my knee and my little sister was sitting near us. She was kinda mean to him and didn't like him very much, so she was just going on and on like "you're so stupid. What a retarded little bird. What a stupid birdddd~"
So he hops down from my knee, waddles over to my sister, and starts climbing on her. At this point she's like "awww, look. He wants to sit on me now." All smug and what not. Anyway, he climbs all the way to the top of her head, shits, and flies three rooms away to his cage.
It was the best thing I had ever seen. I cried I laughed so hard.

Oh right...the plugin was turned off
It's not curry badger anymore.
Have you ever had Canaries? They are one of my favorite birds. I had three pairs of Crested head Canaries.
If you ever want to add birds to your collection, try them. They are so cute and they produce alluring whistling. Some Canaries can whistle in so many tones.
By the way, all the birds, peacocks, pheasants, chicken, + puppies I had, were babies. Not mention, I hatched some at my home, in the incubator. It was too cruel to see the newborns searching for the comfort and warmth of their mothers. I disposed off the incubator.
