Determining the sex of an Amazon

You need to have a DNA test done. You can take your bird to the vet or a breeder if you do not want to do it yourself. They will either cut a toenail too close and get blood or pluck some feathers. Then they send it off to a company that will tell you if it is a male or female.

I recommend you do not do this yourself. First, the bird can bleed to death if you do not know how to stop the bleeding and second, the bird may not forgive you for a long time. Let someone who is used to doing these things do it.
