Yep! It's another "is my tiel a girl or boy?" post.

I haven't been able to have Panda DNA'd yet because every time I go to do it, something comes up financially or I forget to mail off the samples. So, I figured I would ask here. I am hopeless at sexing pieds and I could look it up easily enough, but I figured it would be easier to ask you guys and get some actual opinions.

SO.

Panda is 7 months old now and i'm fairly certain he has been through a molt (LOTS of white feathers of varying lengths coated my floor a little while ago and Zoe isn't whiteface lol).
He doesn't sing, he just screams and copies the few whistles that Zoe does.

Do wing spots mean anything with pieds? Regardless, I managed to get this helpful albeit bad photo of Panda stretching tonight (ignore the blood and lack of flights, we had a little night fright last night)



I'm fairly certain he is actually a she based on behaviour but it would be nice to get some other opinions until I eventually get the DNA results lol.

Any male behavior? By 7 months baby Jaid was making a whole bunch of racket. Panda could just be a quiet boy though, but just asking

Nope. He copies Zoe every now and then but other than that it's just your typical tiel screams and squawks lol

Based on your info I would say female.. but they always seem to surprise us, right? :p

Sorry to hear about the night fright! May your feathers grow in twice as strong, lil Panda!

Unfortunately, pieds can't be sexed normally because they can maintain those spots for years. I'd guess girl based on behavior.
