So I am just starting to find out the differences between males and females I have only had Ollie for about 2 1/2 wks and he is young but he is always making these little noises it is to funny I was so use to Georgie who makes no noise at all..lol other then those LOUD contact calls when she wants your attention but for 90 % of the day theres nothing from her just curious if anyone else notices any differences between there males and females :)

The noise was the first thing i noticed too. Bailee chatters while Cookie only has her one toned contact call. Now that he's getting older Bailee does "heart wings" and flirts with Cookie and his reflection. Those would be the main things. I've read that females are cuddlier but Bailee is just as cuddly as Cookie, if not more. But then, he was handreared.

both of mine were hand reared and I don't know if its because Ollie is younger then her but he is definetly more cuddlier then she is :D which I find strange because I was told its the females that are cuddly :)

Well Cookie wasn't hand reared but she was happy to receive cuddles from day one. Bailee took some persuading, i got the impression he was thinking "oh mum! you're messing up my crest!" every time i gave him head scratches. Once he learnt that scratchies were nice, i can't give him enough - he's always wanting more more more! :p

Spike is starting to make different noises. He even does the wolf whisle once in a while. He hates that ugly bird in the mirror though :p

cheeky attitude is right...lol although Georgie is pretty cheeky herself :p

Hugs does it mainly when he is out. Its cute to watch. Has his face stuck up in the air. Doing heart wings and singing out loud.
I can't wait to hear that singing out loud from Ollie :p
