parrot how can i tell if my african grey is male or female

Editor's note: If you want people to see and answer, you need to post a question, not an answer here to another question, at Parrot Questions. You need a DNA test to determine gender.

i was watching my pet shame on tv and a woman came on with an african grey she didnt no the sex of it so juse named it george the vet come on and sexed the bird, it was a girl, the woman lifted the bird up so the vet could look under it tail and said if the tail is plane red its a boy and if its got silver on the tips of the red under the tail its a girl, i didnt no the sex of my african grey so i named him alfie, had him 3 years and just found out he is a girl but it dont matter shes had that name for 3 years and she dont mind. so thats how you can tell and you can look it up on the net, it is true

Boy or Girl?

We are owned by a African Grey and there is no way to tell. The only way to tell is to bring the bird to a Avian Vet and have DNA test done. That is how we found out we had a little boy named Smokey.

You need to have a DNA test done, preferable by your avian vet. Most breeders will do the test for you also.
