Is it a male or female?

I bought a lutino/whiteface (albino) at a bird show last week and she thought it was a male but she pelvic bone sexed it and said that the pelvic bones were fairly close together and I went to sex it and they seemed fairly far apart!! Does the pelvic bone test work Or do you have to go by behavors? Cause I am thinking its a female cause it whistles but not a whole lot!! I was hoping to breed it to my female (cinnamon lutino whiteface) and get baby albinos next year!! But if it turns out to be female I will trade it at the show in april!! It's only 5-6 months old so can it start whistling more later? I would like to know!! Thanks Melissa & the flock

It's so hard to tell at that age, the best thing to do is get it sexed. You can get the stuff over the net (im sure some one here has a address), you just clip a nail and a drop of blood and they send you the results around $20.00, or go to your vet, i have no idea what they charge. Hope it happy.
