My Latino Alex had no ring around its neck and was supposed to be about 18mths when i got it, and have had it for 3 yrs now. I have had it paired with a split lutino cock, and got nothing, so this year its been with a pure Nepalese Alex, but still nothing. But over the past two months has had a moult and now looks like a ring forming around the back of its neck . I think i will have to get it DNA'd :)

What a gorgeous bird!!! Yes, the only sure way to know sex is to have a dna test done. Your Avian Vet has to do this test which consists of taking a small amount of blood or swabbing the mouth to get material. Have ONLY an Avian Vet do this because dog and cat vets no nothing about birds and are not licensed to examine or treat them.
