think bobby is a girl too. she/he is more than 6 months. new feathers coming out on face. looks gray. so at the end of the day i have a female and male. charlie is male as he is chirpy and gives kisses, and she is quiet. when charlie is doing the show off dance to the mirror or anything that is in the cage, bobby puts head down and wants to be preened. charlie justed lets her know he is not interested. he is still young. can i change her name? this will confuse the african grey, as he just calls and talks to bobby the whole time. hope they mate, so that i can become a granny and have more birds, without buying more!
