parakeet gender and learning to fly
(lake forest, ca )
1) I got a parakeet with a Pink Cere thinking it was a female companion for my other bird and within 2 months the cere has changed. First turning Purple, now it it is Blue. How does that happen? Girl/Boy?
2) The same bird had her/his wings clipped and we let them grow out, but now it seems he doesn't know how to fly. When we let him out he flys into walls etc. Are parakeets born with the ability to fly or is it learned?
